Eric Lapierre

France Born in: 1972 Emerging artists

Born in 1972 near Lyon, Eric Lapierre is one of the emerging stars of contemporary art.

He didn't do any artistic studies and left school when he was in ninth grade to do a training at a printing house. He then began a career in a photography laboratory.

He is very familiar with new medias and technologies. He masters photo editing, digital painting and graphic design. This is how he was able to feel fulfilled and began to create. He prints his photos on metallic paper and poses them on aluminum structures.

Famous personages emerged on these structures, rock stars like Bowie, Jimi Hendrix or the Beatles. Portraits on black backgrounds which come to life through color shades and a game of shapes. Eric Lapierre uses as well icons from the popular culture, we can see Chanel n°5 or Audrey Hepburn's face emerge in his pieces.

The characters who appear in his works are updated through colors that run under their digital skin. Gentle colorful explosions, which are fluid and let movement be seen.

Philipe Lapierre has participated in several exhibitions, most of them important ones. In 2013 in particular, he stood out in the exhibition "The Story of the Creative" in New York and the following year in Times Square. He was on the cover of GQ in 2015 with his work "Keith Live" which increased his fame.
