“I’m much more interested in the line and contrasts than in colour. I use few tools, sometimes just a simple paint-brush. In Nature, even if we can recognise a plant by the shape of its leaves, these are not identical. I want to achieve a similar effect in my work. So a pattern, even repeated several times, will always include some small differences.”
Arthur-Louis Ignoré is a young urban artist interested in the evolution of ornaments across the history of art and the role they occupy in our civilizations. His creations fit in with street furniture and adapt to their specific features. The spaces on floors, walls and roofs are home to paintings with black-and-white patterns, often with botanical inspiration. The ornaments created reveal the cultural mixing of our contemporary cities but also produce a contrast with the aesthetics of the modern city.
