SeCaM, aka Stéphane Castet-Moulat, born in 1972, self-taught painter, lives and works in Salon-de-Provence... After years of creating images for others as a computer graphics designer, the need to express his creativity in more personal "works" has become more and more pressing... "Devourer" of images, he took the plunge in 2015 and launched himself with passion and assiduity into the creation of paintings, drawing inspiration from collective memory, imagination, the media, cinema... pop culture, emerging from the themes: Cult objects of the 80s: Polaroid, Rubik Cube, Walkman... Cinema: Taxi driver, Pulp Fiction, Shining, The Lord of the rings....-Robots: hijacked goldoraks, imaginary robots...-Music: Bjork, Lou Reed, Hendrix...-Anakronik: Mona Lisa playing with her Goldorak, Gustave Courbet desperate in front of her Rubik’s Cube...SeCaM considers himself an artisan, passing from one technique to another (stencil, collage, acrylic, pastels...) to create a "beautiful work". The creative process remains the same: an idea, an iconographic research, then the realization of the work, with, as the last step, the phase of "deconstruction", of the painting ragingly thrown on the canvas. The result is colourful works, full of details, a mix of pop art and street art, with a touch of surrealism and derision. Intuitive or reflective gestures, bright colours or black and white, nostalgia or modernity, his approach always remains focused on a single goal: aesthetics.
