Sébastien MEHAL

 

Born in 1970, and originally from Martinique, Sébastien Mehal graduated from the School of Audiovisual Realization (ESRA Paris XV) of Paris (2000) and the School of Architecture of Paris (1996).

 

Sébastien Mehal was personally touched by the development of the city and the peculiarities and other quirks of urban life; he draws all his inspiration. The artist integrates into his works a real sociological and philosophical reflection staged in a minimalist style of his own.

 

The light bulb is the major figure of his work. It is the symbol of the impact of our society in inhabited zone. The notion of light embodies both the mental light of man and his vital energy. This object constitutes a central element or even omnipresent our environment.

 

In his most recent works, we observe the presence of splashes of liquid paints "injected" with large industrial or medical syringes. While he used only flat textures, he is currently working on the creation of delicate reliefs that allow a play of light and depth, at the origin of a clean energy to the work.

 

Sébastien Mehal has participated in numerous exhibitions and fairs around the world (Fiac, Art Paris, Art Basel, ...). He is also present in collections in France and Japan.
