Born in 1977 - France
Born in Paris in 1977, EL GATO made his first pictorial experiences in the street with the discovery of the graffiti. It is the influence of this artistic courant which permit us to discover the work of this young painter, representative of this artist generation, using and diverting, a diversity of urban supports in order to express itself. The street art is by definition fleeting; logically he turns on the canvas, without leaving the urban appropriation.
Drawing his inspiration in the comics, the cubist painting, the graffiti, and the lunar landscapes of industrial wastelands, the painting of EL GATO gives the priority to the light, the movement and the colour in some dynamic composition where he uses all kinds of techniques and materials (acrylics, paint sprays, stencils, collages…). He likes also drawing in some piece more figurative where he takes a great care to master a hitch (dripping notably).
He approaches themes which are naturally linked with the urban culture, with emerging symbols in the city of occidental societies. Thrown up against the canvas, the painting describes urban, geometric, coloured, dry constructions telling the vision that EL GATO has of his environment. But his artist’s eye also falls on insignificant items those he promotions to the rank of piece of Art: capsicum, paint sprays, cups…. Again, it is our environment that EL GATO sets out to describe, in a modern language borrowed to the street.
