Born in 1971 - France
Sab Rico is a French artist born in 1971, his work is a mixture of pop art and street art.
The first thing that we notice when looking at the paintings of Sab Rico, is the great quantity of elements that composed them. There is no detail left to chance, no space is left blank. Every corner of his pieces are ocuppied and have a precise reason to be.
An overly crowded pop universe where numerous references combine. Sab Rico uses figures from the popular culture of the 50s, incorporate them and give them a second use by putting them in his pieces. Together, these characters from the collective imagination, form a new story.
Characters from comic strips, tv shows, films, cartoons and mangas interact and not without incidents. Daisy winking to Captain America while Peter Pan leaves Neverland and moves to Candy's country. All of his paintings are sprinkled with onomatopoeias from comics and cartoons.
Having a cosmopolitan decoration, which is not limited to a jumble of attached references. Sab Rico combines popular culture with art history. Around the corner, we could see Dora Maar painted by Picasso with Mickey. Besides evoking classical paintings, Sab Rico makes the most of them with his technique. The importance of drawing prevails in his patchworks. We can detect a thick frame, marked by a black line which underlines the outline. This process is characteristic of the second half of the twentieth century, particularly in advertisings and comics.
Behind the sharp colors and the imaginary heroes, Sab Rico does a disguised criticism of our current and globalized society. There are two ways of reading his pieces, two possible interpretations of his images. he uses naive representations to awaken our conscience, our moral. A work that is never outdated, worth taking a close look, in which we will always find subjects of actuality.
