I try to give bump back to faces that we want smoother, a poesy of break and troubled lines where strangeness and disproportion show us an other beauty”. THE RED CLOTHES: acrylic and china ink. Characters are in china ink draw with wood stick. THE URBAN GUYS: acrylic. In the style of “Yamakazi”, those are string guys moving in the cities, they play with buildings. They were born of a sponge mistake… They are realized with a sponge and acrylic pencil.
