Christophe Catelain born in 1972 is a visual artist and photographer from the 'Urban & contemporary' scene. Growing up with Pop Art, strongly influenced by Street Art, his visuals made up of thousands of images from his trips around the world, now come in different formats (Plexiglass, light boxes, fences, lightweight concrete, plexiglas blocks, etc.).
His works have been exhibited in NY, Singapore, Paris and now presented in Dubai, Los Angeles, Crans Montana (Switzerland) and in France, in St Paul de Vence & Barbizon. Unconventional, more and more involved in a very "Art And Peace" composition process, his collections are full of cultural references and pay homage to the movement "LOVE#FREEDOM#NO MORE WAR."

As a former Parisian fireman it felt natural to pay tribute to the victims of the World Trade Centre as much as to the 343 firemen who lost their lives on this tragic day. Thus the first series ‘No More War’ was born. It has been a relentless work, developing my composition technique using messages, nods to Pop Culture, and tributes as the background for the series. A blend of Pop Culture, Street Art, and photos I took traveling around the world. In today’s multi-media society, everything becomes a source of inspiration…I love… condemn & compose along with the news, and develop future projects to nurture my art…”
