Arzhel Prioul (Mardi Noir)

Born in 1981 - France


Arzhel Prioul, whose nickname is Mardi Noir, is a French artist born in 1981.

He went from doing his artwork on the walls of his room to the walls of his city, Rennes, and he has not stop writing words, phrases and pasting pictures since then. From a very early age, he started training himself in different painting, video and serigraphy techniques, he makes his works in brownfields or abandoned places.

Mardi Noir's main source of inspiration are pop icons and pictographs, which he collects. He reproduces them, makes them bigger with the help of an overhead projector and multiplies them in any support. He makes his collages on the walls of construction sites, abandoned houses that meet only one criterion: they create an exchange between the site and the artwork. Mardi Noir offers the viewer a new interpretation even though he uses images that are part of our everyday life.
