I was inspired by the pile of garbage in front of a natural park in Croatia. These trash that we threw are first of all objects that we bought because they were beautiful. Like them, we will all die. It's a metaphor for life, an image that reminds you every day that you have to enjoy life: in fact, modern vanity.

Stephane Dillies is a figurative French painter born in April 1975 in France. Graduate of Fine Arts, he lives and works in Brussels and exhibited in France (Paris, Le Touquet, St Tropez) as in Belgium (Brussels, Mouscron). His paintings, of varying sizes, are executed from photographs (or photographics combinations) of trash bins found in differents streets of the world. His paintings are landscapes of modern streets, they are snapshots of our life and reveals the futility of our society... Stephane Dillies proposes an approach similar to hyperrealistic painters, except that he offers new issues of painting to spectators, rarely addressed elsewhere. His paintings of garbage reflects the world of insatiable consumption of our society. The themes that are particularly favored are waste, whether real (plastic bottles, soda cans, cardboard, paper) or symbolic (celebrities in alcohol & drugs, low-resolution images from the internet ... ). His paintings are modern vanities and they remind us of the famous Latin phrase "memento mori", "remember that you shall die" and that we'll all end up like soda cans, to scrap!
