Adrien Vermont (born in 1981) presents a work at the crossroads of wall frescoes, social sciences and cartoons from the early 1930s. Based as much on the friezes of ancient Egypt as on the vandal graffiti of today , it tends to redefine the basics of drawing, leading it to new fields of exploration. Radical in figuration to abstraction, the minimalism of its forms favors a strong line which structures the surface of his works.
Leaving aside the binary drawing / painting opposition, and restrictive dogmas in general, he prefers an approach where the opposites are complementary, and where the apparent simplicity of his forms leaves room for a complex reading of the history of art.
Recently, its main theme has been the ambivalent relationship between humans and Nature, offering a body of engaged, as well as entertaining, works featuring animals talking about the animal condition.
A graduate of the Beaux Arts in Paris, his work has been shown in galleries and museums throughout much of Europe.
