PARIS — FRANCE
Backslash is happy to present a stand dedicated to the work of the French artist Thomas Lévy-Lasne, based on its new series of images of street protest, with charcoals on paper of different formats.
Thomas Lévy-Lasne draws his inspiration from the everyday life. He intensi es moments of everyday life in order to present scenes that emphasize his art of the lighting effects, so particular and hard to master but inherent to the technique of the charcoal. The gradations of grey show chaotic images of street protest where the agitation creates a particular tension. For his deepest blacks, Thomas Lévy-Lasne crosses three layers of charcoal and so stresses the density of the coal and the twilight. A xative makes slightly liquid the charcoal and blurs the precise hyper line of the artist, conferring an almost magic aspect on the violence of those scenes.
Thomas Lévy-Lasne graduated at the National Fine Arts Academy of Paris.
