ART x CARS SERIES 002 - WORK IN PROGRESS

ABOUT AYMERIC.

  • I’ve got a weird name. Fact.

  • I’m Australian (born and raised in Sydney) now living in Paris (coming up 2 years in July 2021). I had a good, comfortable, safe life in Australia but I let it go. I needed to be uncomfortable and challenged and I needed to know what I was made of (sounds deep don't it??).

  • My background involves over a decade of oil and acrylic painting. I've studied at various art schools, design colleges and art universities throughout Sydney. Not that studying art and going to art school makes you a good artist. It's just my background. I do believe these helped me somewhat as an artist, whether that be through relevant skill making or just understanding design and art in general but I'm also a firm believer of self teaching which I do everyday.

  • I'm a millennial. I guess it plays into my way of thinking and impacts on my art making. I can be impatient and impulsive and change ideas rather quickly but I try my best to stay focused.

  • The last decade I’ve been working in advertising and video, specialising in video editing, 3D animation and motion graphics, art direction & photography (all of which have influenced my current art style).​

  • I take inspiration from street culture, fashion, contemporary artists, advertisements, photographers & visual effects artists mixed in with my own personal experience of this so called thing called life. 

  • I like to take my time working on my artworks. I worked in quick turnover environments most my life (#advertisinglife), so I didn't want to bring that mentality into my art making. I only want to push out a certain amount of works a year. That's just how I roll.

  • I'm not interested in creating works that sell or pushing political agendas with my art. If my art can inspire someone to create something, that's be awesome, but ultimately I just do what I like and what I'm feeling at the time. 

  • I want to educate people about digital art. Whether this is through showing the challenges a digital artist comes across and also showing the endless possibilities that come with it that expand beyond the imagination. Art has always been a reflection of our times. Nowadays it has transcended many mediums and evolved past the canvas. As artists we can choose to evolve and develop with the times. That's why I abandoned traditional art making & began exploring digital art. Nowadays I can use a variety of platforms like video, fashion & photography to communicate my ideas which makes it a very exciting time to be an artist.

Peace.
