Everything begins in childhood. Very close and admiring of his grandfather, who himself was a painter, it is first of all to music that this esthete turns. As a self-taught jazz pianist since his teenage years, the desire to create and especially to share and convey happiness to his entourage become his leitmotiv. At the death of his grandfather, as an obvious, he takes again his first name: Aaron, who will from then on become his name of artist. As an intimate signature, a personal inheritance, which guides and guides him throughout his artistic process.
It is with a certain ease that, like a music score, Aaron begins a new form of expression: collages and the customization of everyday objects, such as motorcycle helmets, sculptures And musical instruments. Here, the notion of appropriation gives pride of place to the works he produces. Very quickly, Aaron diversifies. His contagious passion, dictated by overflowing creativity, gives birth to several distinct universes, telling a story and prompting the most savvy to immerse themselves in the message concealed behind each piece.
Among them, Dollars attract the largest. Indeed, works with the telescoped size (approximately 1 meter 70), these paintings are articulated around an artist, an icon, which touches Aaron of his career, his sensibility, and the impact that he or she She had in society. They include Kate Moss, Obama, Marylin Monroe, Charlie Chaplin and Mick Jagger and Mohamed Ali.
Next came violins and cellos, pianos and bulldogs, testifying to Aaron’s exaggerated inspiration. Between pop-art and street-art, digital and experimental works, the juxtaposition between the avant-gardism of its works and the value of timelessness constitute a duo of shock (and charm) to form its identity.
While mass culture and consumerism make up his DNA, Aaron feeds on multiple influences ranging from Andy Warhol to Roy Lichtenstein to Robert Indiana and Britto.
Most ? His fantastic landscapes inscribed as darker pieces, derived from the imagination of Aaron oscillating between dreamlike, poetic universe and stamped with a point of self-deprecating and gimmick.
Open to artistic encounters, Aaron has collaborated with artists such as ZED, Eric Pottier, David David, Rakel Wajnberg and Richard Orlinski. Again, the notion of exchange and sharing are the key words of these artistic encounters. .
Featuring unrelenting generosity and sensitivity, Aaron’s meteoric rise is steadily increasing and filling the aficionados of Art around the world. The proof in May 2017, when it joined the pantheon of the scene of Contemporary Art and exposed in New York under the aegis of the Gallery Bartoux Central Park. A duly deserved recognition for the Frenchy whose emblematic works nowadays are those of Mr Brainwash, Jonone, Bruno Catalano or Speedy Graffito.
When Aaron is asked to describe his universe in a few words, the passionate artist responds tacitly: joyful, colorful, pop, modern and emotional. There is all the beauty of his work: inject a good dose of optimism with life and give pleasure. Because … “A painting lives only by the one who looks at it” – Pablo Picasso
Having arrived in the landscape of Contemporary Art for a few years, the French artist Aaron quickly became an inescapable among the most influential artists of our time.
Dollars as if it were raining!
Imagined as “illustrative biographies” as Aaron likes to say, these are the unique and emblematic pieces that made the success of the French artist. The concept is simple: Aa-ron enthrones an icon of our era at the center of a bill of 1, 2, 5 or even 100 dollars, the very symbol of the consumer culture and spearhead of the pop-art movement Dear to An-dy Warhol.
From Mohamed Ali to Obama via Amy Winehouse or Basquiat, each personality has had a major role in society. Aaron realizes these works with a pro-cession of his own, with a 100% digital process or in mixed technique (collages, paintings and posca). He creates dollars in formats of 60 cm to 2 meters and soon phenomenal works of more than 3 meters. Each of his works includes a hundred reworked images from his research or photographs that reflect the life of the icon in question, from his childhood to his success. These works of street-art are generally integrated like winks to the cities in which the icons were able to live. A kind of pat-chwork of life that reads and admires without moderation!
Instruments of a precious beauty and fragility, violins and cellos are among the elements that have charmed Aaron with this sonority that knows how to flirt with the clari-net. Aaron reinvents them by injecting his universe and his pop-art influence. The result is without appeal: violins and violoncello gays and arty lustrous colors and a strand outdated. Most ? A finish in white acrylic paint that confers a vintage ca-che halfway between the lived experience of the instrument and the process of innovative realization of the artist.
When music scores become artistic scores!
By mixing genres, we create the unexpected, thus the desire …
Aaron understood, the better he experiences this adage at the heart of his first creations. It was thus that everything began: the customization of everyday objects, which quickly attracted the greatest names in contemporary art to give birth to new collaborations and inscribed in the pantheon of works of art that Mark our time. Among them are the WILD KONG of Orlinski, the malabars of Rakel Vajnberg motorcycle helmets, and the famous bulldogs with the British DNA that the artist likes and mixes with its influence street-art and the identity New -yorkaise.
A vibrant tribute to those whom he admires and of which he is fully part today, revisited by the singular leg of Aaron and whose artistic counterparts were conquered as well as the public.
It is a true love story that binds Aaron to the pianos. Indeed, self-taught pianist since his adolescence, it was obvious that the instrument has a place of choice in his universe pop and colorful! To do this, Aaron reinvents the pianos to give them an arty design, faithful to his artistic identity and his devouring passion for the re-reading and appropriation of objects. Once again, Aaron performs with par-cimony and highlights artists he likes, like Keith Jarett, whom he loves especially, but also the Beatles, Elton Jones and Ray Charles.
Note that these unique works dis-pose a majestic size since they extend over 2 meters long. This gives new life and spreads a good deal of optimism to a classic and traditional object.
Aaron’s fantastic landscapes are resolutely his darkest but also the most personal works. Indeed, true creations combining the techno-logy with the digital art that mastery with brilliance, these landscapes are composed of different and varied images of which some coming from his personal photographs shoo-tées during his travels, Which he then juxtaposes with elements that have marked him during his life. In this way, we can find as many references in the world of music, cinema and the architectural elements of the cities he visited and inspired. A dreamed world, where dreams rub shoulders with realism in order to reveal to the public unique works, each of which plunges into its own emotions.
When the marvelous invites itself into reality.
