Alëxone was born in 1976. He lives and works in Paris.
The work of Alëxone is marked by the indelible mark of graffiti. He made himself known at the beginning of the 90s with his "oediperies" which he realized then in the streets or elsewhere, which mix graffiti, refined calligraphy and elaborate in situ installation.
Alëxone has developed a very colorful phantasmagorical universe, inhabited by animals and strange characters whose extreme deformity he pushes. His work is meticulous and detailed, the result of regular and sustained work.
He paints mixed techniques on paper or cloth, the spectacle of a merged animal society, which makes the vox populi sound with a very demonstrative malice.
Alëxone paints acts of bravery. Between games of words and wit, in the hubbub of happy fictions and the whirlwind of colors spreads the spectacle of a fusion animal society, which makes the vox populi sound with a very demonstrative malice. If one quickly understands the hoarding of multiple referents among which graffiti, Byzantine art or comics, one will guess behind this Fantasia the depth of a specific balance, that of a labyrinthine frame against a background of playful rhetoric.

Acrylique sur toile - 125x180 cm de 1994
Born in Lyon in 1957 Lives and works in Paris.
At the dawn of the 1980s, he brought a new figurative painting. Present on the artistic scene in 1979, he is the creator of a movement that Ben called Figuration Libre, a movement regrouping Rémi Blanchard, François Boisrond, Robert Combas and Hervé Di Rosa.
Painting made of freedom, she talks about society, violence, sexuality, the suffering of people, their little joys, their smallness, their greatness ... She is inspired by the rock whose artist is an amateur end, popular images, childhood books, textbooks of all that makes a popular culture accessible to all. "I sometimes work abstractly by jets of painting, a kind of abstract expressionism." The figurative is the fun side, down to earth, initially it was a ridiculous reaction against the intellectual paintings of the middle of two worlds There are still some messages in my painting: at first it's a certain energy, I wanted to paint what I wanted, in the comics we are stuck by the characters, while in this painting I I am the art of the 70s. Me I come from the popular medium, I lived in free completely free, even by the format. "
"Robert Combas's painting is perpetually awake just like an organism, its work is in fact a constantly open structure and, for this reason, needs continually" food "to stay alive. such a phenomenon is not possible without the presence of the "other", that is to say the viewer, between the latter and the work of Combas is woven a relationship of complementarity where one needs "the other" And the image is the way used by Robert Combas to "provoke", to get a reaction from the viewer and to "invite" then, that is to say, to blow him: "Come and talk with me I want you tell the stupidity, the violence, the beauty, the hatred, the love, the seriousness and the funny, the logic and the absurd that surround our daily life ".
The artistic language does not stop at the borders of the intimate. On the contrary, it is from this "intimate" element that he will then go beyond it to become "social". A language that, at the same time, is a positive attitude; because beyond the scenes of violence or intense sexuality, beyond the combination image word (or phrase), the work of Robert Combas is above all a gesture. This gesture has no didactic basis (the subject is not the epicenter) but is a behavior that is thirsty to expand its field of action well beyond the closed boundaries of a language in the history of Art, to turn to what, until now, had been despised by the elite who dominated art during the 70s: children's drawings, fools, comics, music rock The child is in fact nothing more than a strategy: that of a painter who wants to enlarge the field of action of his iconography.
And it is the work of Robert Combas: the behavior of a painter, who, being in constant evolution, becomes an attitude. An attitude that is not content to be essentially "artistic" but also wants to be "social". That is to say, a critical attitude. "Robert Combas, Between freedom and provocation Demosthenes Davvetas, published in" DIALOGUEcatS ", Editions Au même titre.

CEDRIX CRESPEL born February 9, 1974, is from Guérande. At first as a designer draftsman in a design office, then an art collector, he quickly moved towards a much more creative expression such as design, interior design, photography, music and above all painting. that he has always practiced.
This atypical course makes it an emblematic artist of a generation from pop culture, rock, urban, open to his time. Resolutely contemporary, her work absorbs and mixes these influences and draws a surprising energy and sophistication. The works of Cédrix CRESPEL explore, between sweetness and violence, the contemporary feminine where the woman is staged in a symbolic universe in a laudatory way. Its flawless Glycéro perfect dishes give an icy impression contradicted by the energy of colors, a mechanical realization that excludes all vulgarity. Her work shows women who have a singular graphic scrambling on the faces because her only goal is to paint femininity in its broad sense.

Manette fond noir de 1989 - Acrylique et collage sur toile - 116x89cm
Born in Lubeck (Germany) in 1935, Peter Klasen arrived in Paris in 1959, he lives and works in Vincennes since 1985.
A committed, rebellious artist, his works evoke industrial society, a smooth world in which the artist plays with multiple signs and objects: far-away inaccessible beauties, sensual mouths, concrete walls, metal objects, kitchen utensils, industrial machines, manometers, circuit breakers, ammeters, dials, wheels, pipes, pictograms and key words: poison / radioactive / corrosive ...
A major artist in Narrative Figuration, Peter Klasen through photography, painting, sculpture, three-dimensional installations, also represents an acute and demanding awareness of contemporary life.
His work crystallises anxieties, brings together symptoms while provoking reflection and liberating the imagination. Both collage and trompe - l'oeil, his creations are inspired by urban reality, his signs, his codes, his coldness and his hardness.
Peter Klasen's originality lies in the intention behind his work and the material of his choice to express it (work from photography).
Contemporary artist in his means and his research Peter Klasen also wants to be a watchman of contemporary life. He wants to underline the ambivalence, the inseparable and contrary aspects: the fascination and the seduction that it exerts by its efficiency, and the obvious or hidden dangers that it conceals.
His work has been the subject of several public commissions: wall mural for the Sncf station at the Musée d'Orsay (1987), wall mural for the Forum des Halles and the Lille City Hall (1988), Silkscreen for the bicentenary of the Revolution (1989) ...
But it did not fail to attract investors and private patrons: mural for the parking of La Défense (1994), mural for Factory Prat Europa ...
His works are exhibited all over the world and appear in numerous public, institutional and private collections (National Library in Paris, Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris, National Museum of Modern Art - Center Georges Pompidou, Paris, Moma New York, as well as in many modern and contemporary art museums around the world: London, Tokyo, Seoul, Berlin, Mexico City, Geneva, Vienna, Brussels ...)
Just do it - technique mixte sur toile - 202x46cm
Maxime LHERMET was born on July 27, 1974 in Sète.
His first paintings traveled very early to the United States, Germany or Spain.
Inspired by his inspiration, he did not have time to settle down in a movement and his non-academic painting is now becoming figurative and abstract. A subtle blend of burnt plastic, oil and acrylic or pigments reflects the success of his research on the subject that has always fascinated him.
The paintings of this series exhibited at AD Galerie are made on plastic tarpaulins burned with a blowtorch then glued on canvas (often large size 80 cm x 100 cm) and then painted with glycero or acrylic lacquer, on some paintings natural pigments are added with fixatives. Some colors are created by a mixture of lacquer and acrylic. Thus effects of materials appear between the colors.
Ceci n'est pas un Vermer. Assemblage et collage sur bois - 170x140cm
Born in 1964, Eric Liot is successively a painter, sculptor, assembler and collagist. As many disciplines and techniques of creation that establish today as an accomplished artist.
Its galaxy, it oscillates between the Campbell Box or the worlds of Warhol. For twenty years, the man has emerged as a recovery of images. Impregnated with the works of the artists of the Narrative Figuration such as Errò, Télémaque or Peter Klasen, Eric Liot, like his elders, works in the moment, feeding on images and everyday characters to fix our icons contemporary. We meet indifferently our favorite heroes, Super Man Che, the usual figures of consumption such as Bibendum or the box Campell, or characters from cartoons, movies, or video games. The artist uses and abuses all this small world to build all kinds of singular and representative metaphors of our time.
But the originality of Liot is to multiply the possibilities by including in a work several images in order to telescope temporalities, spatialities and personalities of different nature. Thus in "The time of the colonies" the figure of Banania attached to a body of Xmen is cut on a background of toile de Jouy! So again, collage and puzzle all at once, his "Mickey trash" appears as the singular image of a kaleidoscope.
Like all painters who have fun rushing our eyes in the maze of all kinds of space games, Eric Liot takes pleasure in bringing up a character of this disorder perfectly mastered! Liot is firmly rooted in the tradition of found object and assembly. It subtracts the objects to their original utility end and adds a new plastic quality to them. The bottom of wood then serves him as canvas. He then settles in the perspective of painting. Yet thanks to successive layers cut to the dimensions of the subject glued, it drifts little by little towards a low relief that one could describe as "painting-sculpture"!
Contemporary by excellence, Eric Liot confirms, through this new exhibition, his artistic talent full of imagination and originality, always guided by this innate taste of derision.

LUDO is a French painter born in 1976 deriving from the street art movement. He graduated in sociology and took design and communication courses in Milan, Italy. He currently lives and works in the Paris region.
As a teenager, he is passionate about skateboarding, devouring 1980s magazines and collecting punk-rock flyers. He learns street art by posing his tag everywhere in the streets of Paris.
He is now well known for his street interventions where he fuses organic and technological elements on XXL collages, to give life to all kinds of insects: electronic butterflies, bees equipped with a gas mask ... but also hybrid flowers and green skulls. Acting with pencil lead and oil painting, Ludo combines mechanical and plant objects to transform them into hybrid creatures. These works are drawn with the precision of botanical illustrations.
His favorite color is repeated in each of his creations: an apple green almost acid ... which has become over time its visual signature. Like the artist Klein, who has copyrighted his blue Klein, Ludo wants to do the same with his green.
The coexistence of these universes at once organic and robotic, gives a paradoxical visual result: harmonious and chaotic.

Mist, born in 1972 in Paris is a French graffiti artist.
It was at the end of the 80s that Mist (Guillaume Lemarquier) discovered graffiti along the RER railways by going to his art school in Paris.
Captivated by what he saw, he made his first graffiti in 1988. His paintings with bright colors and Wildstyle leaves no one indifferent. He is quickly recognized as one of the most talented graffiti artists in the capital. He is also one of the rare people who excels in both volumes and drawing.

Hollow foetus dans son coffret - inclusion cristal de synthèse - 34x23x23cm
Alexandre Nicolas, French plastic artist, has a fascination for the modeling of raw materials. These experiments led him to search for new materials, until the discovery of the synthesis crystal. He will therefore multiply the tests and daring on this topic capricious. The artist has found in the inclusion resin a special material, the synthetic crystal, which allows to create a kind of suspension of time. It is a matter of perfect transparency and exceptional strength, which represents a real technological challenge and can fix things in the moment. Alexandre Nicolas works on his personal icons and superheroes who are for him a modern transcription of mythology. The fetus, floating in resin and at the same time completely imprisoned by technology, is delivered to our critical eye by calling us as the mirror of our consumer society. In the ever-changing era of the image, Alexandre Nicolas presents to us, inside the crystal case of synthesis, the fetuses of the superheroes of our childhood, and invites us to dream together to take hand of our own destiny in particular and that of a whole humanity in the making. The series "VERSUS" extends to the field of myths and legends, stemming both from civil society and creation, and resides in oppositions of destinies, it depicts popular figures who clash. Of the chosen subjects, only one is real (Yurifoetus): it is the emotional and cultural counterweight to imaginary and esoteric creatures. The characters are fully integrated into our culture, they return sympathy.
Portrait (3) - Huile sur toile - 100x81cm
The painting of Philippe Pasqua, we receive it as a physical shock but also as a vision that is both explosive and incisive. The amplitude of the artist's gestures - a dance where alternation brutality and finesse, trance and lucidity - command the monumental format of his paintings.
Philippe Pasqua begins by painting some kind of fetish or enigmatic silhouettes evoking voodoo. Then, little by little, his gaze turns to those around him. It interferes with the folds and folds of the intimacy of beings; goes to the depths of their being.
As a counterpoint to this carnal work, there are his great drawings. The face or body becomes halo, mist, smoke, line, vibration. It is not so much flesh and matter as sketched contours and delicate textures.
There are also "palimpsestes"; works on paper combining screen-printing, printing and painting techniques, where the painter revisits his own works by staining them with colors or redrawing them.
Another major aspect of Philippe Pasqua's work is his series of "Vanities". The technique used evokes as much that of the goldsmiths of the Middle Ages working on a reliquary that some shamanic ritual. It covers human skulls with gold or silver leaves. He can also dress them with skins that are then tattooed. Finally comes the delicate stage where skulls are adorned with naturalized butterflies. Wings spread with iridescent colors: the light diffracts on their surfaces in a colored powder or is lost in the deep shadow in the hollow of the orbits. It also happens that it runs liquid paint in a thick stream that covers everything and submerge.
In recent years, the artist has also visited Carrara, where he carves skulls of several tons that are like massive stars radiating telluric force. At the foundry, Philippe Pasqua made imposing bronze fonts which are then immersed in chromium baths. The skulls that emerge - human or animal, like that of the hippopotamus - become like mirrors: sometimes we only perceive their blinding brilliance, sometimes they disappear in favor of what they reflect. And as soon as we approach it, it is inevitably our own image that we see.

Paris de 1992 - Acrylique et papier journal sur toile - 38x46cm
Antonio Seguí is an artist, born on January 11, 1934, in Córdoba, Argentina. He lives and then works in Paris, France. A prolific artist, painter, sculptor and illustrator, he is considered one of the most important artists in the world. Often presented as a major figure in the Figuration narrative movement, he describes himself as an independent artist.
A real star in South America since the 1950s, his work was revealed in Europe at the Biennale de Paris in 1963. Then, exhibitions followed in the biggest museums of the world.
A retrospective of his works on paper was devoted to him in 2005 at the Center Georges Pompidou in Paris.
Early in his career, influenced by artists such as George Grosz or Otto Dix, he practiced an ironic expressionist figuration. Gradually, his figuration evolved to the absurd, building a kind of theater on the stage where a man in motion seeks his place in the world. Playfulness and humor supplant existential anxiety and he tries to orchestrate in his own way the hopes and follies of a human comedy, ironic, falsely naive and disturbing.
A Latin American artist, each of her works carries the images of the city, the night and her native country. Using charcoal, pastel, pencil or pen, he makes live on a background of urban agitation, a colorful and graphic world that seems to emerge from the world of comics.
