Stéphane Blanquet's work depicts a personal mythology inspired by folk and popular culture, fairgrounds and magical optical illusions.
His paintings are highly detailed and multilayered, with seemingly chaotic sceneries of erotism and devotion inked by a modern tribal monk.
One may recognize elements of Art brut or outsider art with the sense for perfection and harmony of a contemporary classicist.
The artist's touch is unique and recognizable in every inch of his canvas and with his latest "red" works, he has been experiencing a renewed excitement for his work.
For the NEW ARK EXHIBITION | Bangkok, Stéphane Blanquet created "CENT MILLE BOMBES DE VIE SOUS LES ARCADES", a 3 by 2 meter painting inspired by the mission of the New Ark.
