Ced Vernay

Né en 1968 - France

BIOGRAPHIE

Ced Vernay alias Pixced is a photorealist painter and photographer born in Saint Etienne (France) in 1968. He moved to Rio de Janeiro, (Brazil) in 2001. His style is figurative and mostly focused on portraits.? His drawings are created using mixed technique: collage, oil and digital painting.

Trained at Emile Cohl, the famous drawing school in Lyon, then at Northwest Community College in the United States, Ced Vernay spent over 10 years in Brazil and recently moved to the European capital of culture, Marseilles, and made his comeback in France.

After Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, Megève, Aix-en-Provence and Lyon, Ced Vernay showcases his works in France, at galeries such as Isabelle Poli in Saint-Etienne and agnès b. in Marseilles.? Vernay is a fan of pixels, an element forbidden by any photographer today, in the age of HD.

His portraits of celebrities are realized thanks to an infinite patience and sophisticated technique where each confetti is cut up from magazines, then placed with a pair of tweezers to compose the portrait. This process is symbolic and the artist uses it to illustrate the ephemeral side of the star-system. ?In his paintings, whether they are digital or in acrylic, he makes the photograph his own by creating each pixel by hand. This is a process of reconstruction of the image that is impressive through its strength and realism. In other words, the pixels are the result, but the technique is that of collage or pain­ting… Or when mankind snubs machines.

His work take us in a universe where we need to get closer and then further from the artworks, to better apprehend the different scales and where the spectators will maybe get to lose themselves in a state of pure contemplation.
