ALEXIS DE MOUSSAC

The French Perspective: Contemporary Art from France
July 8 – July 28, 2016
Reception: Thursday, July 14, 2016 6-8 PM

The paintings of Alexis de Moussac seduce the viewer with bright colors, geometric forms, and a sense of universal beginnings. A self-taught artist, de Moussac was active in the street art scene as a teenager until, inspired by the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Rammellzee, and Taki 183, he decided to move his work from the street onto canvas. De Moussac’s preference for spray paint lies not just in his love of street art, but also in the fact that it gives his work a sense of spontaneity. Once he starts painting, it's impossible to go back and "correct" what's been done. This fits in perfectly with de Moussac’s philosophy of chance and innovation: the explosions and dripping of his medium force him to explore different means of expression and push the possibilities of abstraction through geometry and overlays.

De Moussac firmly believes that a piece is not complete until it’s seen by others and arouses emotions in the viewer. He says the most rewarding thing for him as an artist is to see someone enjoying his work.

Born in the region of Paris, de Moussac currently lives and works in Saint-Savin in France.
