Andrea Pavan

Surréaliste

BIOGRAPHIE

Architecte de formation, l’artiste italien Andrea Pavan voue un intérêt particulier à l’aménagement de l’espace. La géométrie en particulier le fascine. Né en 1968, il sort diplômé de l’université d’architecture de Florence en 1996. Sa carrière lancée, il consacre son temps libre à la photographie. Au fil des années, son intérêt pour le huitième art grandit et son style évolue vers le conceptualisme. C’est l'avènement du réseau social Instagram qui provoquera une transition majeure pour l’artiste. Depuis 2014, il utilise la plateforme pour partager ses oeuvres, sa vision artistique d’un monde singulièrement géométrique et résolument esthétique. Hors du temps et de l’espace, ses créations obéissent à un scénario dans lequel la lumière tient le premier rôle. Elle dessine le contour des formes géométriques d’une composition surréaliste en noir et blanc.  ... Voir plus Voir moins


Andrea Pavan ’s black and white photos are not like others. The artist uses his photographic technique to create depth, give form to an imaginary environment. The subject is drowned by endless colours, plunging the viewer into another universe: the abstract world.

Marie-Laure Vareilles

ABSTRAIT

Marie-Laure Vareilles finds inspiration through her travels , notably in Asia. It is upon returning home, in the form of montages full of poetry and inspired by the people she meets, that her photographs come alive. Marie-Laure Vareilles transports the viewer to a place between the imaginary and the real. Our imagination attributes our own stories to her photographs. As she herself says “I want the viewer, in looking, to invent his or her own story so that the photomontage comes to life according to each person’s imagination.”

Thibaud Poirier

ABSTRAcT

" Pour les séries des bibliothèques et des églises je voulais pouvoir ressentir une connexion avec ces lieux majestueux et partager comme un espace ayant une fonction identique à travers les siècles."

As the son of an expat, Thibaud Poirier spent his childhood in a number of different cities around the world. But between Houston, Montreal, Buenos-Aires, and Tokyo, this last city has most influenced him:
“I discovered architecture there, especially the works of Tadao Ando, and architecture became my passion,” he explains. “Today it’s the main theme of both my photography and my professional work.”

One of his major projects brings together photographs of libraries and churches:
“I chose these libraries and churches because I wanted to look across history and show how spaces with similar functions could be interpreted differently in different places throughout the centuries.”

Polar Bear

Street Art

Behind the pseudonym Polar Bear lives an artist born in 1979 in Bordeaux. To express himself, he has chosen , street art and the multi-layered stencil he uses to cover the walls of big cities like Paris , London, Berlin, or Amsterdam. He is committed to creating works that are meaningful and poetic. Polar Bear did not choose his name by chance. Committed to animal rights since childhood, in 2018 he started the project Don’t Make Us History with its slogan written under the stencil of a polar bear, a gorilla, or a swarm of bees. His stencil Art is Life, depicting a little girl with pigtails, was one of his first and spread around the world. Today he is one of street art’s leading players.
