  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Steel enamelled oval plate.

    Enamelling is one of the best means of protection against metal oxidation. Furthermore, it bestows a bright surface and sharp, indelible colors on the objects it protects. At the outset of the enamelling process, we use glass by-products (quartz and alumina) stained with metal oxide and melted down at high temperature to obtain a powder or ceramic slip. the metal is surfaced with the powder or the slip depending on procedures (soaking, coating, electrophoresis), then comes the drying, and at last the firing in a oven at 1,454º F. The harmonious bond that is then realized combines metal resistance with glass protection.

Akiza

France Born in: 1976
Robinson Deschamps is a French artist born in 1976.

After his studies of sciences and graphics, Robinson Deschamps turned finally to the practice of latin calligraphy. After making some small works of logos and teather posters, he chose what would become his signature, the drawing of a little doll who he named Akiza.

The doll Akiza allowed his creator to question its identity and the limits of its representation. He uses Akiza as an artwork and an object, art and industry. It is easy to see the artist past experience in calligraphy reflected on her, the doll became a universal and classic image of our society's consumerism.

Gradually, Akiza replaced the name of the artist, who works a lot with the collaboration of his wife Yoshii, he decided to consacrete to a new project in 2012: the opening of an art gallery in Paris.
