Lucien Murat « Oups I did it again! »


Opening Wednesday 16 November

Lucien Murat (1986- ) is fascinated by the concept of the end of the world, its representation and its impact on the “collective unconscious”. His canvases are patchwork of carefully chosen oldfashioned classic decorative tapestries one could find in each grandmother’s home in France – sewn together. Under his paintbrushes, they are transformed into immense colorful tapestries, questioning the fantasized grandiose of chaos, constantly flirting between absurd and grotesque.

Following a foundation course at the Atelier de Sèvres in Paris, Lucien Murat graduated in Fine Art at the prestigious school of Central St Martins in London. Winner of the Arte – Beaux-Arts magazine in 2015, the artist follows in the footsteps of caricaturists and painters of the dark romanticism, or even those of the contemporary Chapman Brothers.

An exhibtion that will surely alter your dusty percetion of tapestries…
