visual communication practice

Le temps, la routine tue! Sortir de la machine!(The time, the routine kills! Let's get out of the machine!)

Description of idea

Describe your idea and concept of your work in relation to the festival outlines:

A picture of a cityscape. High buildings. Representing society and it's sructures, norms, etc... The buildings stands on gears, heart of the clock's complex mecanism. A moon shines groteskly above piled up houses. A skull laught as the clock tics. Bellow, two hands bound together by barbed wire. From a window of one the houses, a rope has been built to escape. At the bottom a couple escapes in the dark.

Love is power. Power is conflict. Love is conflict
What is the relationship between love and power?
What is the relationship between power and conflict?
What is the relationship between love and conflict?
How can we use love to share power and use conflict to practice love?

Love a strong feeling. Makes us do things that are beyond our reach, makes us do great things, makes us take some risks, to face death perhaps. These risks are a inner conflict, "what should we do" "I don't know" "We should escape from this world, you and me" "but how?" Imagination! "I have an idea" The sheets of the lovers bed, built as a rope, became the tool of their evasion. Together, they run. Catching up the time lost. And now taking the time to live fully.

What kind of communication approach do you use?

Something like a graphic novel, but in this case no dialogues, just images. There is a title, a scenery, caracters, actions, a story... they say an image worths a thousand words.

What are in your opinion concrete benefits to the society because of your communication?

It inspires... and for me thats the first step towards crating something concrete.

What did you personally learn from creating your submitted work?

That every body has Is own persertion, is own vision of your work. And talking with them, who see your art with defferent eyes, make you develop a new perspective of your own work. Gives you a new speech to communicate with more affirmation.

Why is your work, GOOD communication WORK?

It's simple. It's a painting. It's not highly intellectual or conceptual art language. People understand paintings, I think. They can see it, touch it even, see how it's made...it's accessible. The places where I exhibit it, bars, pubs or political events and their people are more familiar with that kind of art. It talks to that kind of social scene.

Where and how do you intent do implement your work?

Bars, pubs, tattoo studios, politacal events, underground shows are the places where my work is seen

Did your intervention had an effect on other Media. If yes, describe the effect? (Has other media reported on it- how? Were you able to change other media with your work- how?)

Subfield description

I paint a lot on canvas and I had a lot of fabrics of all sorts. My art work is a mix between painting and collages. Lots of mix medias and different textures. Sometime my art become 3D because of texture. My art speeks, or should I say screams. My art is rought, agressive even violent sometime, because we live in rought time with economics, wars and poverty... which are depicted a lot in my work. My art is pretty simple, it's not conceptual or hard to understand. I exhibit it in alternative bars or pubs or political events.
