‘Through the Mask’

Who are you? What do you do and feel when you are faced with the reality of the self? Is our society shaping your identity, the way you act, the way you are?

Life is a confrontation between individuals with different stories, different roots and different ways to think. Our actions shape our identity and our identity shapes our actions. The new collection poses questions about the masks you wear and whether you commit to taking them off.

Feel free to visit the exhibition til the 13th of july 2017 at The Number Gallery, 90 Wallis Road, E9 5LN Londres

The Language of Emotions

Exhibition / Chop Shop / Camden Town

For my first exhibition in UK, I decided to show one of the biggest influence to my creative process : Music.

On february 2016, Mae Maze and her amazing Chop Shop in Camden give me the opportunity to present my first serie of illustrations and paintings based on « The Language of Emotions ». What do you feel when you are listening a sick music ? you probably repeat it, hum it and get fancy to create.

Concerning that serie, I create each painting or illustration by using only one song in repeat to get a composition through rhythms, voices and rimes. I decided to represent the singer, song writer, rapper with a kind of environment around though up from the song.

The Language of Emotions is a way to thank all those Artists who influence my work everyday and help my creative process. Among them : J.Dilla, Madlib, Homeboy Sandman, Fairuz, David Bowie.

Concept of the exhibition: each piece has been display with a QR Code letting People listen the song while they look at the painting.
