Stopped by the industrial world for which he worked for too many years, Franck Lamboley decided one fine day to seek an alternative that could remove him from it definitively in order to give free rein to his dreams of both liberty and creation. The self-taught artist, originally from Paris, would thus begin his pictorial production in 2006.
Trying his hand at first at the oil painting technique, he eventually opted rather quickly for acrylics that he would work in a relatively abstract way. His current work, the fruit of a long research process, results from an approach that he began at the start of 2015 and that is the opposite of his prior preoccupations. From acrylic bombs associated with various types of cardboard and paper, the artist produces “urban frescos” heavily inspired by two great artistic movements: Street Art and Pop Art. Composed of a juxtaposition of collages to which he applies a range of actions – that go from cutting to laceration and partial covering up – his canvases resonate like perfect visual representations of our modern era.
A great admirer of the “icons” of his time, the artist thus pays homage to cinema and music stars or even imaginary characters, essentially taken from American comics, that have made a mark on our minds. “Intimately linked to the chaotic path of [his] life”, his art incorporates what is deep down inside him, showing all of the emotional potential that are born from each of his creations, and by offering the viewer a familiar image to which he can relate himself.
