Florent Touchot

Using a mixed technique of collage and acrylic, Florent Touchot salvages bits of old posters, found either in the streets of Paris or Marseille, the Parisian metro or local flea markets. Beginning with a concept and an emotion, he expresses a dynamic and colorful universe inspired by popular and street culture. Florent transforms these posters, creating a structured and coherent whole with harmony of form and color. In each of his canvases, he remind us of a familiar images of figures - childhood heroes, old advertisments, and images from the past like the Mac Apple logo, or the underground sign... His work is very deep as painted perspex is bloted into the canvas to create another layer and complete the story. Florent Touchot is a French pop artist who currently lives in Marseille (south east of France). He has been selected for the famous artus hotel who revisits the 1950's style, in Saint Germain des Près, Paris. Both painter and photographer, Touchot creates a great layering and very deep artworks. He has several favourite subjects such as the street and urban culture, portraits of famous icons (Yves Saint Laurent, Steve McQueen, Clint Eastwood, Audrey Hepburn...) and a pop/rock selection. His work had been shown in Asia (Singapore), Canada (Toronto), Europe through the four Envie d'Art galleries in London and Paris.
