  • Pappay | Contemporary Artist: Artworks & Biography

Pappay

  • France
  • Painter / Sculptor
Painting and graffiti are for me a way of life as well as a mode of expression and excite me stylistically and culturally.
As an art enthusiast eager to learn and experiment with different creative techniques, PAPPAY successively joined several schools of fine arts before completing his training by obtaining his National Diploma of Visual Expression in 2008 in Marseille. A graphic designer, he traded his digital tools for aerosols and canvases from 2013, to return to "his first love", painting and graffiti. Over the years, the young artist has learned how to build, with simplicity and enthusiasm, a boldly dynamic impression of sensitivity, which embodies human life in its richness as well as in its diversity
Drawing inspiration as much from the fields of architecture and graphic design as from all the forms of street art, the visual artist has invented a singular universe that highlights the mark of humanity on in its environment. Thus, from freehand drawings that he then reworks by means of paint projections, PAPPAY endeavours to give an account of human unrest by the pictorial representation of its places of activity, empty of any people. In a fair game of reversal of the subject to better translate an atmosphere, hotel façades, seaside huts, travelling vans etc. become, by the will of the artist, the symbolic witnesses of our hectic lives.
