It is a piece from a series of portraits of the broken faces of the First World War. Faces disfigured by violence, which were hidden in order not to shock, are aesthetized here by the line symbolizing the double reading of armed conflicts; the honours of conquest and power against the reality of the bodies of flesh and blood of sacrificed lives. The blue liquid, symbolizing water, life, comes out of the wound. The man swollen by the violence of war, losing his identity through his wound more than shreds of flesh. Beyond this terrifying past war, the series resonates with this third world conflict that continues to grow. "Humanity will have to put an end to the war, or war will put an end to humanity." John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Born in 1987 and originally from the Côte d’Opale (Pas-de-Calais), Maxime Foulon works mainly with acrylic and Indian ink. The artist seeks, above all, to challenge the spectator. His inspiration comes from those around him, from injustices and inequalities. At the heart of the subject is the Man, who is exposed. His shortcomings are denounced in the works of double reading. The artist thus develops a vibrant aesthetic, reflecting on who we are... Maxime Foulon was very quickly attracted by the image and its emotional and narrative power. As a child, he was inspired by Gustave Doré’s engravings illustrating "Les Fables de la Fontaine". His first drawings were directly inspired by it. His work is difficult to classify. Expressiveness, figuralism, "unfinished" and conceptual, the images he creates are always meaningful. His artistic style is very graphic. He particularly works on the layout, dynamism and incisiveness for a greater efficiency of his works. After a light pencil, the artist uses ink, brush or pen. He always leaves meticulous space for the "accidental" side in his creation; a splash, a burr, a run-out... Thus, more vibrations and life emerge from the work.
