Saturday, March 1st, 2014

I just ended yesterday the 5th step of the Art of Freestyle, but here is a quick post about the 4th.

AUTORETRATO en Mexico

AUTORETRATO, FUMANDO EN MEXICO. 70×50cm. 250g paper. 2014

While in Mexico, I had to stay home sick, and because of the sickness, I experimented some feeling of distortion of time and space…nothing like pink elephants in the sky, but a smooth confusion, or alteration.

L’ÊTRE. On the path to KAUYUMARI. Mexico. Huichol culture.

Sunday, January 5th, 2014

Blessed was I to spend the last month of 2013 in Mexico.

I had never been to that part of the World, so I was very excited about discovering its people, its culture and its lands.

L'ETRE

L’ÊTRE. Pencil and markers on 300g paper. 70×50cm. 2013. Mexico

But once I came out of the plane, my body felt terrible. I spent the 10 first days ill, laying, blocked in a home which was not mine, unable to see then do what I was hoping to… But still, I could start the meeting through books and documentaries. I choosed to remain friend with Time, and learned a bit before i could feel.

Nine days later, I was healed. I could go out and rediscover, walking the first steps on the path to Kauyumari.

THE TELLER AND THE LETTER. Mexico & Martinique.

Friday, January 3rd, 2014

I always loved the Letter. For its shape, for its inner-power. The infinite potential of depth and shape through the association of one of them with another, in a word, or all of them in a phrase.

REMED. Spray paint on wall. 5×7m. 2013. Mexico DF

Apart from the auditive language, I, as most young human-beings, naturally tended to “draw a description” of something rather than trying to “write” in order to register an information, whether it was material or emotional.

BIAC. Biennale of Contemporary Art. Martinique Island.

Saturday, December 28th, 2013

During November, I’ve been lucky enough to be flying to Martinique island, in Caraïbes, in order to take part in the first biennale of Contemporary Art there. The mission was to create a mural of  more or less 10 by 8 meters.

CYCLOPE, FEMME GRENOUILLE, & ASTRONAUTE

CYCLOPE, FEMME GRENOUILLE, & ASTRONAUTE. Spray on wall. Martinique Island. 2013

As i choose to arrive virgin of prejudice or stereotype where I go, The first thing I did there, such as in most of the place I visit, was to learn about the most ancient Art of the region. So I go in the street talk to people, learn about the legends, and visit the Archeology or/and Anthropology museum rather than any other. It’s where I find what i need to find. It s where wisdom and knowledge, when not hidden, is exposed.  And there…I’ve been very inspired, feeling I was touching some of our lost memory.

NATIONAL MUSEUM OF MEXICAN ART. Chicago. USA

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

This summer, after my ankle was healed, I’ve been able to go and stay a month in Chicago, living in Little village, Pilsen neighborhood.

I was invited by the National Museum of Mexican Art in order to do a large workshop with the students of this institution.

PAJARO COSMICO. Chicago. 2013

PAJARO COSMICO. 6×18m. Spraypaint and acrylic. Chicago. USA

There, I had far enough time to accomplish what I had to. And I always have admired popular kraftwork, worldwide geometric patterns. And Mexican folk Art is a great sample of it.

So I felt like it was time and space for me to dig a bit the roots of the Art, to talk about what influences me, to work again with devotion and rigor within the intuition. Going deeper in seek, back to the basis of geometry. Introducing the students to ancient knowledge, accessible and meaningful to all.

So I decided to introduce the kids to the science of vibration, also called CYMATIC.
