VIEW IN MY ROOM
Inspired by the imagery of fashion in East and South Africa, this painting is part of my 'Urban Jungle' series where I represent almost exclusively people of colour in rare and unique landscapes. 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. Here dashingly wearing two gorgeous blue suits, the two men come out of the water with style in a surrealist scene, maybe to arrive on a dryer and safer land. Their suits melt and fuse with the water they are walking in making the escape somewhat more difficult but the poetry of the scene stronger. ~ TECHNICAL DETAILS The artwork is sold stretched on canvas, varnished with satin invisible UV protection and ready to hang.

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.
