"Mr Strange" is my artistic pseudonym.
I hope to propose an original vision ... And even give an indirect opinion on everything around us.
Modestly, I hope to propose a reflection or an interrogation on the world around us.
For the sketch or the model of the work, I work on my computer.
I do Photomanipulation or digital collage.
This process suits me well because I am no longer limited by the technique.
I work on images that I collect on the net then I transform.
My "kif" is the mixing of these diverse and varied images that seemingly have no connection between them.
And who, once associated, create a new reality and open new doors.
I distort the reality and I make (I say it modestly) of the surreality.
But the result is, I believe, not a jumble because I like realism in presentation or representation.
Even if I work on images (photographs), I feel closer to the painter than to the photographer.
To steal and immortalize a moment like the photographer, is not my intention.
I am not in spontaneity.
Then, my partner takes up the challenge of transforming the digital mockup into oil painting on canvas.
His name is Qihai Chen. It is a Chinese who made the Academy of Fine Arts.
He is a very good technician. It faithfully reproduces my original creation ... Sometimes bringing its touch.
