| AKAB |
AKAB is an iconoclastic french artist born in Paris 1968. He first became a film director after a series of different more technical professions in the Film industry. He is a self taught artist who feeds his inspiration on all kind of art such as cinema, painting, music, photography, comics, design and architecture. All those images, encounters and emotions are references combined to build and shape his whole artistic universe. It is just as if he observed the constant mutation and evolution of a world that appeals to all of us. He uses his technical and artistic skills to serve his work in which metamorphosis and transcendence are part of his art display and guidelines.
His artworks are rich and complex for he uses acrylic paint, glitter on rigid surfaces such as high density wood fiber, plexiglas, metal, cardboard and even skateboard. It all works to emphasize his explosive artistic poetry that is definitely blazing !
AKAB invites us to go beyond our own nature with his series «Métamorphosis». The wings represent freedom, the search of the sublime and all the vain things that keep Humans from finding it. His work aims to be a lyrical and allegorical transformation of a soul in perpetual rebirth as a take off towards what might be an idea of eternity.
