VIEW IN MY ROOM
This painting is an interpretation of photographs from photographer Pieter Hugo and it is part of my 'Urban Jungle' series. This series started in 2017 and is ongoing, it opens a dialogue between urban life and nature. Through it, I raise questions about the relationship between our kind and our surroundings, the imposed force or the complicity we have with nature in its general form. 'In the fern forest' depicts a young man seating on a large branch covered in moss in the heart of a deep jungle-like forest. I found the contrast between the young man, his parka and the surroundings interesting. I have also had a long-standing fascination for ferns and jungles which I adore painting. The face of the boy is drawn and not painted with only a few accents of gold to leave traces of mystery. TECHNICAL DETAILS Some parts of the painting have gold liquid metal, acrylic and ink which gives the painting another beautiful dimension under different lighting. The artwork is sold rolled, varnished with satin invisible UV protection and needs to be framed or stretched for display. If you would like to have it stretched prior to shipping please specify so to Saatchi Art and the price will be updated accordingly with your approval.

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.
