Jean-Olivier Chafraix was born in 1977 in Cargèse, in South Corsica. Gifted in drawing, he naturally began to express his art through painting. Passionate about new technologies, he turned to digital art. Today, as an accomplished artist, he combines digital technology and painting. In his opinion, the two worlds are complementary. On the one hand, he creates works with acrylic paint and aerosols on canvas and, on the other hand, compositions from several vectorized and computer-reworked photos. The prints are unique copies, printed on brushed aluminium and covered with epoxy resin. His art comes from popular culture. In his works, Comics characters, rock stars and film icons mix with each other. The urban landscape inspires him and he uses pictures taken during his travels.
