Duotone Vinyl Art Technique

Wall sculpture made up only of vinyl records, cut, assembled, then glued on an acrylic glass plate. The choice of the central macaroons of the vinyl discs present on it is intended to highlight a part of the musical work of Ray Charles. The central buttons of the vinyl records on this one are designed to highlight a part of Ray Charles's musical work, and include some of the most outstanding albums of his career.

This artwork is also equipped with a spotify code, in the bottom right-hand corner, which can be scanned with any smartphone. It makes it a connected work of art that becomes as much a sound portrait as a visual portrait.

Yannick Duhamel

Mondeville (14), France

The path that led Yannick Duhamel to become a sculptor-plastician is singular. Initially, it was as a musician and composer that Duhamel experienced his first artistic ascension and success. First in jazz, and on the guitar, which notably allowed him to cross paths with Ray Charles by providing his support act in France. Then in folk, singing, writing and later directing, first with Trema/Sony music, then Universal Music, which resulted in two gold records and numerous tours over fifteen years, throughout France, Europe, Quebec and as far away as Australia. Then the loss of inspiration; the legacy of a painfully aborted 5th album at Universal Music. And finally the trigger, Duhamel rediscovering himself through sculpture. Inspiration rediscovered through matter, form, light and dark.

Self-taught, as he was in music, searching for new materials, mixing the arts, finding his own "voice" in sculpture to express what is within him and sums it up, he then invented the process of Duotone Vinyl Art. Today, through his sculptures, essentially made of vinyl records borrowed from an elegant vintage nostalgia, Duhamel pays homage to the golden age of the record.

He owes his present success to the fact that he has been able to "shift the lines between the arts" by turning his sculptures into connected portraits that are as much visual as they are sonorous. As Joe Strummer, leader of the band The Clash, said, "everyone has to realize that they don't have to cling to the past if they want to have any kind of future". Duhamel is the best example of this.
