  • BRAT  (+)

    Biography : He first became a director after having worked in various technical occupations in the film industry. Self-taught, he feeds his imagination with the most diverse forms of art, from cinema to painting, from music to photography, from cartoons to pop culture. So many images, encounters, emotions that nourish his universe and anchor him in a certain «shifted reality» as an observer of the permanent mutation of a world that resembles us.

    Detailed Description : The chosen themes play on space time with aesthetics and superimposition. Shades of grey and bright colours blend and support each other… Brat reinvents, gives another meaning to images, he injects new life into them to tell another story. He mainly uses aerosol and stencil techniques, in a simple precise or runny layer, or in thick multilayers giving relief, all enhanced with acrylic. Some works, sometimes composed with abundance and complexity, reflect the random puzzle of his imagination, his memories. You have to sit down and look, look into the details, search the different layers. Others, more sober and conceptual, reveal a mood, a thought, reinventing the instantaneous 'Polaroid'. For him, art is an impulsive wave… adding life to life.

  • STUDIO HARCOURT  (+)

    Biography : Since its creation, the timeless and classic Studio Harcourt has been preserving and nurturing the fundamental values that have shaped its success and reputation: the demand for excellence, respect for aesthetics, French elegance and a very Parisian art of hospitality. The aesthetic of the Harcourt photographic portrait draws its heritage from the glamour of the golden age of black-and-white French cinema. A style that is often imitated, but never identical, it is a token of eternity, an iconographic piece which has established itself as an indispensable signature over the years. If the present is a grain of eternity as Nietzsche says, a Studio Harcourt portrait is a promise to preserve an unchanging moment of eternity, the precious memory of moments engraved forever, the essence of sheer emotion. ​

  • ELKA LEONARD  (+)

    Biography : Her paintings, with very precise scenography, give a vibrant tribute to the woman, which is the unifying idea of all her work. Her painting is mental, she likes to embark the observer in a labyrinth of femininity, the decor is colorful and full of references. ​ Elka Leonard says she is « a thief of emotion » because she likes to light people's imagination, to guide their chimera, to open their thoughts. Her work is based on «freezed frames». To know how to observe attentively is to suspend the movement of agitation of thought, to remain in the openness that the senses offer us and to let discovery enter into perception. With a lot of detail, she astonish, and let the perception its true power, which is to reveal a rich and complex presence. ​ She let us observe her reality : everyone is involved in a game of solicitations and answers affirming who he wants to be. Her latest works shows this allegory of identity: Who am I really? Works to go beyond appearances.

  • CHRISTOPHE MOURTHE  (+)

    Biography : Christophe Mourthé is one of the world’s leading fetish photographers. His unique vision has found expression in art books of his own conception, exhibitions, installations and films. He has also worked as a commercial photographer, shooting editorial features, print advertising, record albums and book covers in Paris, London, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Munich. Christophe Mourthé is a visionary who quickly felt that social trends in the 1980s were constantly changing. He rapidly became a forerunner of the ‘fetishist’ school, which was later incorporated by the world of advertising. Christophe Mourthé’s fetishism became a true style, preceding a fashion trend which haute couture would later appropriate. His photos are rooted both in the tumultuous period of freedom of the 1970s and the period of ‘safe sex’, which would abruptly halt the enthusiasm of that decade. Other ways of experiencing love developed, and one of those was fetishism. Christophe Mourthé belonged to the ‘Palace’ generation, just like Mugler, Gaultier, Chantal Thomass, Madonna, Nina Hagen, Blondie, Lou Boutin, etc, headed by the spiritual father Fabrice Emaer.
