BUZON, EDOUARD

Edouard Buzon was born at Clamart (France) in 1979. He lives and works in Montreuil (France).

At the age of 32, Edouard is an emerging artist. His works show a certain form of the current urban aesthetics. He plays on the opposition between the raw universe of architectural forms that he photographs and the smooth icy varnish with which he finishes his works. His unique lacquer technique, the striking contrast between the black and white photos of industrial landscapes and the appealing colors make his paintings very desirable pieces.

This is how he describes his work:

"I testify, through my works, of a certain form of today?s urban aesthetics.

The creation process spreads over several months, this is the time required to charge each painting with of history, by painting, writing, erasing, covering...

The technique puts in opposition a raw urban universe, and the smooth glossy varnish. I use a technique of color blocks on a wooden frame consisting of successive layers of polyurethane varnish to which I add pigments and photographs. Each of them is sanded and polished.

When I add characters, these are more like silhouettes of absent presences which are located in light sources.

If my photos evoke the negative of a color photograph, that may be a game of illusion, of the metamorphosis."

"Through my work I want to bear witness to a certain kind of modern urban aestheticism. The creative process takes several months; the necessary time to paint, write, erase and recoat, to charge each piece with history. The technique opposes a harsh, urban universe with the smooth, glossy aspect of the varnish. My method involves the use of flat tints on a wooden chassis built up through successive layers of polyurethane varnish, into which I combine pigments and photographs. Each layer is sanded and polished." He takes a picture he uses as a sketch. Then, he chooses places with heavy history that have been colonized by Human beings A factory, a house, disused liability... all places that people deserted one day. When he is in a chosen area, he immerses himself of all things that give strength to this urban landscapes, he looks at these structures marked by time and gather all these elements in order to build an atmosphere, a universe around these places. In his work, he tries to make them his by giving them a second breath of life. That is why he uses bright colors. He wants to warm up these desolated landscapes. He inlays element of nature, flowers, tribal symbols, and his hand in his painting. Indeed, he wants to add his signature. And If he employs varnish it is to give them back their original and so precious charm. He finishes an artwork in two months as a minimum. It takes time for the pigments and varnish to dry. But sometimes he can keep a painting during six or eight months in his studio in order to spend the necessary time to assimilate its soul and engrave his signature. He always works on several paintings at the same time. BIOGRAPHY Born in Clamart in 1979. Buzon works in Montreuil, France. He has always painted, but still had his job in parallel. Painting has always been his real passion. From design to painting, he has felt the need to express his creativity. One day, he realised that he could make this passion his job. This happened the same year he started to work with Envie d'Art. He has never studied art but he has always been interested in it. He has always paid attention to attach a great importance to it in his life. He read a lot of books about artistic movements, contemporary art or the great masters that influenced art history. By soaking up their works, he found the path that he always wanted to take. He made his references, his influences.
