Kikayou

The power of the imagination and of feelings, dreams, memories and work on the subconscious guide me.
Born in 1966 in the south of France, from very young Kikayou was passionate about drawing, painting and sculpture. Derived from graffiti and tag, he left on the road from city to city, unnamed stigmas forging his universe. Encounters, emotions drawn from the news and daily life made up the rest. The world that he has created from the Basque Country (where he lives with his large family) is cast in his image: teeming with energy and ideas but devoid of any pretensions. He paints there surrounded by his family and continues to create his whimsical universe in line with the conception of his life, and some ingredients... talent, imagination, feelings and relevance.
His works, inspired by the work of Basquiat and Dali, Andy Warhol's pop art, Jacques Villeglé's collages, plunges us into an indescribable chaos, a cross-sectional world, a bright and impulsive art, and an ode to a life full of promise and without constraint, because it is the moment that one must live fully. The power of the imagination and feelings, urgency of creation, dreams, sleep, forgetfulness, memory, physical experimentation and work on the subconscious guide the artist in his quest for colours and sensations and lead the viewer on a path to his own interrogations, worries, thrills, obsessions. Luminaires, collages, canvases done with spray paint and stencils illustrate this fantasy world in line with the painter's conception of life. By recovering lost images, he finds his memory and feels more and more "alive".
