I was inspired by Sin City and the creative use of Comic book art as a medium. Franks Miller's design is very simple yet so powerful, every one of his drawings is a single piece of art. In my piece I focused on 3 colors: black, white and yellow. The use of these contrasting 3 colors create a bold statement which is indicative of Frank Millers work. The use of yellow paint on canvas is to add an additional layer and texture to portray the chaotic and violence of the Comic. The text is contrary. It is a provocation to the viewer. The frame is in wood which makes the painting strong and durable.

Nicolas Burkhardt is a self-taught artist. Painting since 2008, he built his catalogue inspired by the masters of street art such as Bansky and Mr Brainwash. Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein are also unconditioned references of Pop Art in his work, completing his artistic foundation which, by the fusion of these two tendencies, unite to formulate Nicolas’ work. Not content with the single image, Nicolas affects the verb, introducing in his renderings words affirming the emotions conveyed in his paintings. They are the identity of his artistic commitment, without seeming repetitive. He wants to make the viewer think, be intrigued and question. A conscious « provocation » to extract the meaning of the interpretations suggested by his work. His professional background being in finance, Nicolas looks at the corporate and consumerist world both from an insider and outsider’s perspective, using this as his artistic canvas and source of inspiration. His critical eye blended with his artistic approach, brings together two dichotomous worlds (art and consumerist), which, when combined, create an unexpected and powerful combination that will lead people to think, and have a critical eye on themselves as well.
