    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Cheyco Leidmann does not hesitate to present marginal beings who are most often drug addicts, unemployed, tramps, criminals, prostitutes, transsexuals… Images that are often difficult and sometimes unbearable to see because they are all of great cruelty, impregnated with odors of sex, blood and fury. In line with many philosophers and writers of our time, the artist makes the same observation, as written in particular by Marcel Gauchet (see his book “the disenchantment of the world”) of this boarding of things by boarding people. This implacable logic which leads to the transformation of things by the transformation of men into things. Hypersensitive, he sees art as emotion. He always finds behind the brutality of his images and even of death and misery, a form of beauty. In fact, he constantly breaks taboos and canons of aesthetics. For Cheyko Leidmann, technique is secondary. Photographic quality is first of all the impression he is looking for, this mini-second which allows the veil to be lifted. This sublime single print photograph in cibachrome of extraordinary quality with vivid and vibrant colors that plunge us into the heart of the 80s. The certificate is provided by the artist.

Cheyco Leidmann

Bouvet Island Born in: 1700
Cheyco Leidmann is a visual artist, his name is synonymous with the the strength and power of his images, the quality, the strength of his Oeuvre.He stages a grotesque universe, prompting the viewer to enter his erotic and burlesque theater .He creates a universe where unreal dreams, fantasies and reality encounter.His career traverses various genres such as film studies, screenwriting as well as images and film assignments.- He obtained his first success in bookstores in the 80's ."Foxy Lady", his first monograph is reissued five times released in different countries and selected by Vogue as a cult book of the last five decades.Since the 80's Cheyco Leidmann has established a new unique visual style of avant-garde a expressionism 'sharp' inimitable.He possesses a magical art of staging and imposes his look in the monograph 'SILICON '.
He reveals a subtle environment in America by the banality , which in the end turned monstrous. A populated place of buxom women, oversized heels, bodies sealed wearing tight clothing in hyperral colors and provocative poses , beside cars, knotted cords and the faces mutilated beyond recognition, he imagines a bloodless America , surreal, fantastic and sometimes disturbing born out of violence, sex and obsessions. These strange situations, mixing some sensuality with reality and fiction. His artistic vision has influenced the world of photography, he has influenced filmmakers, creative directors, designers, musicians, and a generation of photographers with its hyperrealist colors, their imprudence and provocation. Today he continues to inspire.
He has won several prestigious recognition awards for his images including the New York Creative Directors Club Gold Award.
His images have become a 'trademark' and although his style was straight away copied, reclaimed, admired, criticized has evolved, it remains instantly recognizable among all. Seven monographs followed and have been the objects of exhibitions at galleries and museums.His classic images are in demand by the market of art. Between 2002 and 2004 a self-punishment period occurred, a radical change was inevitable.- 2006 indicated the beginning of a new era with numerous engagements in contemporary art galleries The year 2008 indicated the beginnings its new publication "Toxytt" during his most conceptual period. He has largely abandoned his 'visuality' to experiment with a unconventional language and almost chaotique.Leidmann as a committed person committed attacks at "social demons ,observing reality and rid of its artifices just to reveal that perversion and absurdity ".It shows the world in all its rawness, an unreal world that scares us.Cheyco Leidmann works closely with its creative director Ypsitylla von Nazareth.
