Zen Art Rebel  Davis-Dutreix is part of France's contemporary underground art scene known as squart (ie: squat art).

The necessity of having a work-space for artists (painters, dancers, actors, musicians etc.) is fundamental but the incredibly high prices for such accommodations make it inaccessible for the average artist. Therefore we "squartists" occupy empty buildings, ready to be torn down or sold and give them a second life by turning them into studios and work space for artists.

This site is visual poetry of psychedelic-techno-mandalas and spans forty years of creativity.
