VIEW IN MY ROOM
'Lord Purell Christ' is part of my series 'Nowness in B&G'. It was realised in my studio in NYC juts before the lockdown in NYC was put in place. 'Nowness in B&G' (B&G-Black & Gold) regroups several small sizes works that capture nowness in society. It can be based on personal photographs of everyday life or images I am captured by. I started this series in 2019. This artwork was inspired by the panic that took New York early March as the virus COVID-19 hit the world and NYC in particular. Penuries of basic products such as hand sanitizer appeared and such goods became gold. This work was my take on the distortion of the economy when basic affordable products became ridiculously overpriced overnight. TECHNICAL DETAILS Some parts of the drawing have gold acrylic and gold leaf which gives the drawing another dimension under different lighting. The artwork is sold as-is, signed, on paper, ready to be framed.

Best known for his cross-cultural approach, Oscar Lett stands out by his bold looking paintings prominently using black and contrasting metallic colours. Based in NYC, the Parisian artist loves to embrace the influences of the countries he lived in. After moving to London to study at Central Saint Martins, Oscar then moved to Kyoto as he sought teaching from the masters of Nihonga (traditional Japanese painting). Appropriating each culture and their aesthetics, O.L. developed a unique style depicting a world where opposites can coexist and where people overcome their struggles in impossible urban jungles. Working in large-scale and always craving bigger, Oscar naturally moved to New York in 2016 and made the street his new playground. Since then Lett has been developing a wide portfolio of murals in Europe and the U.S., allowing his fine art and street art practices to inspire one another.
