Biography
Michel Ajerstejn is a French artist born in the district of Belleville, Paris in the 1950s. He studied at the School of Fine Arts and Design in Paris. He was first a designer and a signwriter. Later, thanks to his meeting with Willy Ronis, he discovered the field of photography, a medium which he loves like graphics art. The blending of a variety of techniques and the diversity of the materials used give the works an additional level of complexity. The photograph, removed from its initial context is developed on different plates and industrial or photo-specific paper, via a digital process. In some areas Michel applies paint by hand or adds a screen print to the glass plates or Plexiglas. Michel Ajerstejn also uses lettering and typography in his work. The use of letters and numbers adds a further dimension to his work. The photograph becomes a vehicle for a true artistic motif, that of the written word. Michel Ajerstejn's work offers the viewer urban scenes which are both expressive and reflective of contemporary society. He superimposes the graphic prints and texts to create works that are both powerful and pervasive. The layers in urban life are made visible in Michel's work, no city is a singular place, different areas and districts have their own personalities and atmosphere. In Michel Ajerstejn's work the viewer is captivated by the poetic vision of the artist, we can identify ourselves with the seemingly anonymous figures that walk by. Each and everyone of us has experienced that fleeting moment of recognition a stranger passes you in the street and you are sure you have met before. Michel Ajerstejn captures that transitory moment and offers us the opportunity to connect with those who have passed us by.
