BUTCH, 2pac 2018 mixed media on canvas. Signed and dated on the back. 92 x 65 cm.
Butch is an artist from the wave of graffiti artists of the late 1980s. After having animated the walls of the capital, he turned to studio painting.
His paintings on canvas transcribe his experience during his graffiti trips and give us, in a way, the backstage. We discover abandoned building facades, wastelands, squats...
His images are colourful, covered with oversized lettering, populated with characters from comics or cartoons, with drips and accidents. In this work, which is based on the trompe l'oeil technique and hyperrealism, Butch allows us to discover an urban universe that we come across daily without paying attention to it.
There is also, with Butch, a process of mise en abîme, creating ambiguities that cannot leave the spectator indifferent.
