Produced by Misha Made
Edition of 200
Height 37 cm
French artist César Piette's use of traditional techniques connects him to the history of figurative painting: monochromatic layers, perspective, light, composition, and very significant shading effects. His "hyperplastic" images include three-dimensional effects, intersecting with design, photography, and advertising.
Although he comes out of the practice of illustration and the world of comics and video games, Piette rejects the influence of digital imagery and conceives of his work as a construction game - here, the artificial object is emphasized.
