Richard Vildeman

Born in: 1975


Richard Vildeman is from the Reunion island, he lives in the city today.

He obtained a National Diploma in Plastic arts (DNAP) from the Université de Marseille-Luminy.

While working as a sculptor/engraver, he has been devoted to painting since 2003 and recently turned towards composition work combining stencil, images from collective memory and painting.

These combined mediums become flourishing symbols of the senses. They make up an encyclopedia through time as for news, personal mythology and history, which he puts together to create a free means of communication and something accessible like a universal language.

Maloya, traditional music from the Reunion Islands is his main source of inspiration. He paints in "Maloya", which means he treats art spontaneously, like a Maloya singer. Vilderman expresses his subconscious and is inspired by great masters like Nicolas Poussin, Albrecht Dürer but also modern artists like Picasso and Mark Rothko.

In constant evolution, Vilderman's work adapts with the changes of the world around him. This was the case when he included stencil in his compositions, when he didn't have any workshop or a place to exhibit. Doing stencil work on walls of the streets has become a means to exist in the artistic world continually.

This is how Vilderman linked image stencil with the world of magazines, advertising in order to continue making up his personal and symbolic universe, while being a part of art history, without actually starting from scratch.
