Ogre

OGRE

With an unorthodox but nevertheless recognizable style, Ogre is one of the French artists whose name often stands out internationally. Hungry for travel on a personal basis or for multiple festivals, he delivers uncomplicated style of the highest quality.

An activist, he has organized numerous graffiti events such as Urban Funke in Spain, the Franco-German Summer Session festival or the Potos Carrés de Saint Etienne. He also wrote for the French publications Mixgrill and Innercity, the content and communication of which he carefully selected within the international graffiti community. He is also at the origin of the birth of Mtn-World, blog of aerosol manufacturer Montana Colors which has followed him for more than a decade now.

His thirst for development has pushed his style to be described by his peers as organic, robotic, dynamic, curved, wild and spontaneous. The harmony of colors, the preponderance of the work of the full and the untied are strongly essential in its visual identity. The letter is for him an alibi of forms which combine with color in a logic of its own.

Today Ogre emerges from the shackles of the letter, transcribing the dynamics, the force and the sequences of these on abstract forms. He turns to the study of abstract currents from around the world while transcribing this learning to complex networks of geometry. The work of the encircled is random, both subtle and light as overwhelming. Permanent documentation nourishes his inspiration. The world around him, fashion, photography, Instagram, the metro, the torn posters therein strongly feed his graphic gaze.

His work oscillates between his personal development on canvas and graphic services for various cultural events or big names such as Chanel, Colette, Bensimon, Jim Thompson, Philippe Starck or the European Community.
