Ferhat Messaoudi (FR)
Focusing on social/political topics and situations from his daily life, Messaoudi captures people’s moods and personalities with a twist of humor and irony. He explores these subjects through different mediums and techniques consisting of acrylic, markers, tip-ex and collage. Playing with these tools, he takes the aesthetic and graphic inspiration from Pop Art, comics and photography. Using material such as canvas, wood, paper, even walls, Messaoudi is able to create a powerful expression with strong figurative characters provoking attitude and typically male figures.
