People we believe in
We are proud to present pop-up artist Christophe Mandallaz and his artwork that is exhibited and for sale at Club 55 Classic Cars.His creations are the result of an ongoing fascination. At the age of eight he discovered James Bond in the cinema in "The Man with the Golden Gun". He created his first black and white comic strip in the guise of a secret agent who looked like 007. His first inspiration, was five adventures for the agent, the beginnings of a passion and a long creative process. At the age of eleven, he changes direction and finds a new source of inspiration in science fiction. "Star Wars" by Georges Lucas transports him to another universe that he explores with the tip of his brush, by drawing his adventures in black and white Indian ink. His technique is refined and his style precise. At the age of fifteen, he paints with oil and acrylic and for ten years, he creates paintings and drawings with both airbrush and brush. In 2007, another change of technique, but with the same influences. In full artistic harmony, his worlds collide, a new era commences, with large formats in paintings, bonnets or sculptures. He embraces sports, cinema, fashion, design, cars, architecture, representation of great capitals or forgotten parts of the world, he transforms the images, his illustrations, as if he were making a highly reactive visual object. His works on metal or on aluminium, made with ultra-chromium ink and resin, fix the movement, the curve of time in his pop art universe, somewhere between fiction and reality. Please note that as a Club 55 member you enjoy a preferential price for all his artwork. www.mandallaz.com
