Piotre

Paris From November 22, 2020 to December 7, 2020

Presentation
At just thirty years old, Pierre Ygouf, better known by the pseudonym “Piotre”, is part of this new generation of graffiti artists whose side continues to climb.

Born in Caen in…, this young plastic artist has always been precocious. While many artists swear to have always been passionate about art, in the case of Piotre, the formula seems appropriate. Indeed, in kindergarten already, the Caennais affirms that when he grows up, he will be a painter or draftsman and he asks for books on Picasso. A little later, he joined the high school of applied arts, La Ruche, and graduated from Strate College, an art and design school in Paris. This jack of all trades accumulates influences and does not hesitate to mix styles. He thus succeeds in the feat of marrying pop-art and street-art to perfection.

Piotre's work is largely influenced and more or less explicitly by the masters of the late twentieth century: Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat or Keith Haring to name a few.
An adjective that frequently emerges when speaking of French remains “hyperactive”. Piotre needs to take on new challenges, to challenge the supports and techniques used. He thus easily passes from the canvas in the workshop to the fresco in the street. Piotre has also collaborated with big brands in search of a younger and funer image such as watchmaker Louis Pion. The graffiti artist is also called upon by cities to carry out large-scale projects (Lyon, Lisbon, Marrakech, Miami, etc.).
The recipe for this dazzling success can be summed up in his unique style, recognizable at first glance.

Piotre makes a point of rehabilitating the work of personalities he considers to be under-rated; he then integrates them into his over-vitaminized paintings. The graffiti artist favors a palette of primary colors which he then mixes with black and white to create stronger contrasts.

Finally, one cannot deny the importance of the universe of American advertising of the 1950s, as well as comics on the work of Piotre.
