About The Artwork

The work immerses itself in chaos, which by its nature seeks its order. The portraits are crafted from street poster cutouts, and many materials were found to be adapted to the digital canvas. With an idea in mind and infinite resources, the search for the appropriate stroke ascends, finding its cause. The model of expression is a universal way of saying that beauty can be found anywhere in a world where one can still feel its colors by living.

I paint mainly subjects of famous people, celebrities, and icons of pop culture and fashion; faces, figures, comics. My artworks are a combination of Pop Art and Street Art painted on a collage of torn letters from posters and advertisements extracted from the streets, which are digitized and assembled into the final piece. It is definitely modern, radical painting with a visually beautiful language for the viewer. Intense and vibrant colors combine with large splashes of contrasting colors adorned with multicolored French tears. My major influences are Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Jackson Pollock, Jacques Villeglé, and Mimmo Rotella. I enjoy working on fairly large formats, ranging from 1.20 to 1.70 meters or larger. I often use different digital techniques, especially when assembling the collages of sources and letters for the abstract backgrounds with torn pieces of paper. I feel a certain fascination for these street paper letters from our poster culture; they function as small testimonies of what surrounds us, and each person randomly interprets them to evoke personal feelings or memories. Taking these letters and fragmenting them in a completely different context than what they originally present on the walls allows me to offer new expectations of interpretation among viewers. The portraits are digitally created in a monochrome palette of 10 to 30 colors, giving a more elegant and avant-garde look to the artwork. Street art, as well as abstract art, play a crucial role in my work. I am fascinated by working with the aesthetics of letters and fonts from torn posters and billboards on the walls of the streets. They are beautiful in themselves; free, vibrant, spontaneous, colorful, exciting, and without rules. I like to create them digitally so that I have the freedom to express myself and channel all my energy inspired by urban beauty. In my paintings, I try to use various techniques to make my digital canvas resemble a painting worn out by the harsh environment it is in. These street resources or supports are always weathered, scratched, and damaged by exposure to rain and the environment. I strive to make it as close as possible to a real urban landscape where everything complements each other in a single homogeneous composition between the painted surface and the collage of street letters. I always start creating the various layers in a spontaneous way, often using a variety of techniques such as collage, painting, and spray drips.
