Stephan Balleux

I was browsing Iseen and came across the bizarre work of Stephan Balleux. I am always especially interested to hear an artist describe their own style, or way of working:

“I apply the characteristics of Painting to the different media, like a virus, in order to enhance one or several components and get a global vision which we could label « expanded painting ». In a reversed perspective, I apply to painting other media’s components, borrowing, for instance, from photography its quality of focus, blur and texture. I also borrow from computer imagery a precise mastering of the whole image (Gaussian blur, movement blur, scale, contrast and colour changes, etc.)”

I am not going to pretend I understand what he is talking about but I like his work. More photos after the jump!


Visit Stephan Balleux’s site to see more of his paintings and pastel renderings, as well as his 3D animations and sculptures.
