  • Sébastien Preschoux  (+)

    Biography : Sebastien Preschoux was born in 1974 in Paris. Deeply touched by the optical art, but also by the values of the teaching of the Bauhaus lauding an instruction centred on the fundamental value of the manual labor, Sébastien created indefatigably more and more complex drawings being able to compete with what a machine could produce in a few moments. By this approach he knew how to create a visual confusion at the spectator who can bring this last one to wonder about the origin (human or mechanical) of his works. But only while approaching the spectator will have been able to identify the stigmas of the passage of the human hand, the attitude which Sébastien names the reward of the curious. His work does not limit itself to a production in 2 dimensions, but finds a correspondence in 3 dimensions by means of thread installations, often realized in natural environment, so offering him a perfect freedom both in term of size and variety. For it he works in association with the photographer Ludovic LE COUSTER, who works with argentic cameras. During his previous personal exhibition «Mechanical Sensivity», in September, 2010, in David Bloch Gallery, Sébastien presented us a set of, sometimes complex, often hypnotic, drawings, including an exploration of the color while playing at most on the confusion between human or mechanical production.

    Detailed Description : Sébastien Preschoux is a self-taught artist known for his handmade thread installations and geometric drawings. The main characteristic that differentiates his art among many contemporary aesthetical concepts is his insistence on manual labor. Drawing inspiration from the values of the Bauhaus movement that proclaims the fundamental importance of manual work, Preschoux tends to stay true to the notion and for in his opinion the only art that has sense is one that is handmade. An approach that is quite in a confrontation with contemporary culture in which technology prevails, is essential for his critique of arts and modern lifestyle.

  • Idan Zareski  (+)

    Biography : Idan was born in Haifa, Israel and he has French nationality. Life though, would take him through many countries, bearing witness to multiple races and cultures, which are now a fundamental element in his work. His efforts led him to understand, that his salvation had always been, literally, at his fingertips. Idan has never attended Art School or any sort of anatomy course. His gift came to him as a need, which he understood he could no longer resist. “I don’t plan or organize, I don’t draw sketches. My raw emotions serve as the only guide. Ninety percent of my creations are shaped in less than an hour. When I work, I feel in absolute communion with a force greater than myself”. Idan shapes his creations out of clay, water and fire, to later set them in bronze. He is still amazed by the fact that emotions cannot only take shape, but be shared, without a word... in absolute silence.

    Detailed Description : Idan Zareski's Bigfoot is a world traveler. He travels around the world to be exhibited. Already exposed in Latin America where he was conceived, and having recently finished his North American journey, he is now on his way to Europe and Asia. It is said that his last stop will be in Antarctica where an acoustic concert will be held in his honor for a select public of only penguins. It is a call for awareness that raises the essential questions of “who we are, and, where is it that we really live!” With its African roots and Latin American genealogy, Bigfoot is not a denunciation to racism, as it might first seem, on the contrary, it is a peaceful call for hope, for unity amongst the human race. His huge feet evoke the roots of our past, our anchor to this small fragile planet. Reminding humans that we are all from the same small world. His relaxed attitude and the appearance of contemplation that emanates from Bigfoot is a testimony: No matter what our race or color is, where we live or who we are, we are all enslaved to our paradisiac planet, our home. At ease in all continents, Bigfoot will carry his awareness message about cultural differences and origins in a peaceful way, without offending. Born out of the hands of a French-Israeli sculptor that lived in Africa, Europe, North America and now Latin America, Idan Zareski, a true globetrotter, has been immersed at an early age in the multicultural mold that makes up our beloved planet. His sculpture, a peaceful African with big feet, bares witness to human stupidity. It carries the odors of mass deportation, forced labor, slavery and abuse that countless cultures suffered through history.

  • Kaï  (+)

    Biography : Kai is a native Angeleno artist. At the young age of 14, he pursued his passion and the streets of Los Angeles became his canvas. Four years later, he accepted an offer to study at California Institute of the Arts, the leading school in contemporary art, and L'école des Beaux Arts in Paris. Kai is recognized for his ability to convey a powerful message through any medium. His unique style and social commentary continues to set him apart from other street artists, and has been featured on covers of newspapers and magazines worldwide in recognition of his work. He recently took advantage of the rare opportunity to collaborate with Chris Brown and create iconic pieces that were sold within 24 hours of exhibition. Kai is the present and future of art.

    Detailed Description : Because he wanted to share his message to the most people he could, he decided to make a collection of unique multiples. That is why; you will be able to see some of the work you can see in our gallery, in the street. In fact, you can find some of these works in the NYC subway or in Los Angeles, Miami, Tel Aviv, Amsterdam, London and Paris streets, to name a few. For this collection, he chose to create 14 messages and 7 different frames. But the unique combination of the message and the frame will only be created 20 times. As a real artist, he didn’t want to make perfect copies; therefor no two pieces will ever look the same.

  • Alain Godon  (+)

    Biography : Alain Godon was born 1 November 1964 in Bourges, France and learned to draw at the age of 11 in Achicourt, France at the side of his artist uncle. In 1985 he moved to Paris and then to Brighton (England) earning his living as a pavement graffiti artist. In 1988 in the French ski resort of Courchevel, he began the first period of what he refers to as "Infantine Art". By 1989 he had moved to Saint Tropez and started to paint his first oils on canvas. Alain currently lives in London. Of Godon's art, Jean-Pierre Delarge declares that it is "aligned with free figuration drawing on the caricature figures of his graffiti origins. His representations are simplistic, his colors vivid, his outlines defined by thin black strokes; his figuration achieves contour and definition in the composition of curved and straight lines. In 2009, Alain Godon founded the "Rendez-vous Annuel des Artistes de Demain" (an annual festival for artists of tomorrow). The event aims to exhibit up-and-coming artist both to the public and professionals helping these artists to attain a public profile and to access the commercial art world. Nearly 600 participants, representing all schools of contemporary art, will be attending the second festival taking place in Le Touquet in 2010. Through this initiative, Godon hopes to support unknown artists and offer them the opportunity to escape obscurity and achieve recognition.
