Presentation

For the last twenty years, Alban has questioned social behaviors from historical and symbolical perspectives. Creating vintage objects (that are actually combined sculptures and paintings constructed by the artists out of wood, plaster and resin) the artist tricks our imagination to provoke emotional reactions and self-reflection. These faked rusty pieces of metal have an authentic appearance that supports suggesting a world with a reinterpreted story.

In ‘j’aime les filles’, Alban uses the thematic of wartime ‘nose art’ to explore the dynamics of men-women relationships. During World War II, American war pilots used to represent sexy feminine figures on their planes as good luck charms to survive tough missions. Alban’s 21st Century reinterpretation of these war codes illustrates a story of contemporary feminism. His pin-ups look the way women of today choose to look: self-confident, ‘alpha-female’ sex symbols - and still extremely sensual.

Alban (b.1967) lives and works in Paris. He is graduated from Ecole des Gobelins in Paris. His art is a unique result of diverse influences such as Rauschenberg and his ‘combines’, Hyperrealism, Pop Art graphic design and 21st Century techno-culture.
