Artusnow was born in France but he lives and works in Madrid. He is a self-taught professional constantly exploring the limits between photography and painting, using digital tools to create hyper-textured, colors-driven, powerful artworks.
He specialized in large format creations (the largest he has created so far is a 270 cm x 650 cm wall painting), with incredible textures, complex combinations of colors, that can be figurative or abstract.
He is constantly looking for new textures for his works and takes photos in the most unusual places: decrepit old doors, worn out walls, abandoned hangars, faded graffiti are the source of his perception of reality and his creativity.
Artusnow defines himself today as a «graphic DJ» who, like the creators who remix original sounds to make new songs, superimposes several layers of photographs to create new digital images.
During his work, the original layers of photographs often disappear in favor of a more poetic and pictorial vision of reality, whose psychedelic colors irresistibly attract the eye.
As Durrell said about the poet Cavafis: «People are the result of their internal landscape».
- NATURE: Nature’s shapes, textures and colors are infinite. I love mixing them up to create new visual sensations.
- HUMAN BODY: Ancient Greeks thought nudes could express an ideal of divine perfection, both psychic and physical. For me, the human body still has this invocation power of divine perfection embodied in form.
- TEXTURES: Textures are the essence of my work. They are everywhere, on an old door many times repainted, on a wall full of grafitis or a burned dustbin, but they remain invisible to most people. I integrate them into my paintings to give them a life of their own, which sometimes brings them close to Street Art.
