Born in 1974 - France
"Influenced by comic books, cinema, sci-fi and music, I use paint as a screen of light pixels, where colour lights up in many different ways, springing out of a black background." Nascio
NASCIO's remarkable pictorial work is as exuberant as it is complex — and somewhat hallucinatory. It reveals a symphony of moving shapes, with a very personal and mercurial colour palette. Whether it is sharp and primary or trippy and pop, NASCIO’s use of colour is wholly unrestrained.
Since 2004, Nascio has developed his work around trees, where the central object is dissolved, both literally and figuratively, and entangled in an outburst of organic shapes. At times, a figurative element interferes, a geometrical shape or the unexpected reminiscence of graffiti lettering encroach on what would otherwise be pure abstraction.
Nascio's painting is sheer movement and energy; the expression of his spontaneous creative process. His works do not require any preparatory sketches: they take shape in real time, driven by the painter's relentless impulse.
Mostly envisaged as the portrait of a person, each tree has its own idiosyncrasy. The artist quotes the symbolism of ancient trees, "where the roots, trunk, branches and leaves all speak of the inherent state of a person".
In January 2016, Nascio was awarded the 1er Prix SAIMA for Arabic contemporary creation by the Friends of the Institut du Monde Arabe (IMA) in Paris / Coming soon: an exhibition in Les Jardins Orientaux, IMA, April 2016
