AUGUSTE French, b. 1977

Born in 1977, French artist Auguste hails from the famed Bordeaux region of France. Though he studied disciplines other than fine art, Auguste always felt drawn to the art world and ultimately followed his passion for visual arts, finding his unique artistic vision and voice. He is now known for his colorful contemporary Pop Art-inspired and nostalgia-evoking works.

Auguste terms his oeuvre “Generations” as his works revolve around a central theme of pop culture icons from the past. Conjuring memories of previous eras, his pieces depict celebrities, super heroes, and other iconic figures in conjunction with American and French marks to provide the viewer with a reminiscent glimpse of past epochs.

Working with a variety of materials, Auguste uses an unusual medium of aluminum along with digital collage and acrylic paint, and uses automotive varnish (Aston Martin) to give his works a modern glossy finish. He places importance on form and shape to create the puzzle piece contours and embraces the use of color to create captivating pieces that intrigue not only due to the content but fascinating aesthetic.

Auguste has exhibited his works throughout the U.S., Europe, and Asia. He is currently based out of Bordeaux, France.
