The island, Julien Calot

Paris From March 8, 2018 to April 14, 2018

L'Ile presents unpublished paintings by the 36-year-old Parisian artist Julien Calot. These new works radiate a fiery colored energy. Smiles, life force and the soothing power of nature come together there because Julien Calot likes to travel and meet other cultures. He reappropriates its codes and makes us discover these differences whose richness and invigorating energy he communicates. The works composed of a myriad of colored lines reveal a rhythmic and chaotic figuration that echoes the energy of street art as well as the surf culture on which the artist feeds. Through a series of large formats teeming with signs and lines, Julien Calot celebrates an energetic and colorful life, sometimes violent, where the exuberance of the animal and human worlds mingles in saturated, powerful and hypnotic works, in the blink of an eye. eye to tribal art, Pablo Picasso or Jean Cocteau. Julien CALOT covers his canvases with signs to the point of invasion, creating a plethora of figurative motifs. This is how abundant urban scenes are composed that push back the limits of narration, echoing the political and social issues of our time. In this complexity of details, the artist offers the vision of a colorful, fiery and energetic existence. His large canvases embody the quest for a global vision of reality. Julien Calot tries to capture the bustle of life in its complexity, its nuances: sometimes peaceful and wild, playful and disturbing, luminous or dark. The artist gives us real interior landscapes inhabited by expressive and turbulent characters in which a welcoming or hostile, natural or urban, soothing or distressing environment unfolds. The artist exaggerates the disproportion of the bodies and intensifies the colors more and more, flirting with naive art. The play of dissolving the boundaries between surface and background and the dynamism of these compositions hypnotize the viewer. Originally from La Rochelle, in love with surfing and the sea, Julien Calot reveals a universe deeply marked by tribal art and the codes of surf culture: clear outlines, simplified shapes, bright colors, dynamics of bodies and faces on a background of rock. At the same time, he explores various forms of artistic creation: writing, painting, photography through new technological editing processes, up to the mixing of electronic music.
