Until now, a painter has always been associated with a single pictorial movement. It's possible to speak of periods in a painter's output, but the term "fusion" in painting has never been discussed until now, even though it's a fundamental principle in all other art forms, when it comes to creating. Why is this?
The total freedom of graphic expression in painting only arrived with the Impressionists, at the beginning of the last century, so it's a recent phenomenon. The entire twentieth century was devoted to graphic research, and all painters were therefore linked to a pictorial movement: impressionism, fauvism, cubism, surrealism, expressionism, abstraction, Pop art, graffiti art, conceptual art, etc....!
My analysis, faced with a blank canvas, was that modernity in painting could now only be expressed through a single idea: fusion.
But how could I organize my desire for fusion on a single plane, without falling into a patchwork of disordered graphics? So I needed a guiding idea...
Only the narration of a story within a single plane offered this possibility. By chance, by modifying the juxtaposed graphics, I changed the space-time values on the same plane, an essential discovery since a narrative is a set of actions that follow one another within a given timeframe. Luck is always on the side of those who serve the interests of their discipline alone.
Scripting my painting in order to introduce the fusion of graphics became a priority. So I had to create characters, symbols, a quest, a battle and different universes: thus Storytelling Art was born.
Other interesting discoveries followed, and these can be seen in many of my works...
I've discovered that you can use an impressionist touch in a pop or cubist motif, insert figurative art into cubist lines or pop motifs into abstract forms etc....
The aim of the large-format canvases is to create a sequence of scenic ideas which, in their narrative combination, resemble a filmed story full of twists and turns. The aim is to create suspense through imagery, by fusing different styles to create graphic ruptures that create the necessary movement for the story to unfold.
Everyone will see the imaginary world created by the artist through a different prism, the eye, his internal camera, will allow him to feel the scenes differently. Storytelling Art creates moving works in which the mind and the senses of the viewer are involved and it is in this also that this pictorial movement is innovative.The Storytelling Art projects the spectator within a story that he can follow or appropriate.
