Context and Inspiration

"It's crazy !" is a work created in 2019. Inspired by the iconic architecture of the Manhattan towers, I use collages of the logo of the sparkling water brand Perrier to bring a unique and modern touch to the composition. This work reflects the hustle and bustle of New York City, while incorporating elements of pop art.

Visual Description

The painting features a stylized view of Manhattan's skyscrapers, painted with shades of gray, black and yellow. The buildings are textured and detailed, creating an effect of depth and movement. Perrier logos, integrated into the towers, bring a touch of color and originality, transforming urban structures into a dynamic visual collage. Using the brush and knife to apply the acrylic gives a rich, expressive texture to the canvas.
