Louis Vairel paints the animal.
This animal that we only meet through the image. This animal that we no longer know and that we consider as so different from us.
He stages it so that it invades the space. Its exacerbated size makes it inevitable to our look, especially in a domestic and familiar space. The reading of the painting is disturbed, the chimera becomes an anomaly. This series of paintings illustrates the relationship between an unknown wild world and our everyday life, amplified by an unmistakable contrast in scale.
After studying art at the École Supérieur d'Art et Design de Reims Louis Vairel designs and produces objects, lighting and furniture in his studio in Toulouse before devoting himself to acrylic painting and digital and handwritten figurative illustration in January 2020.
