SÉBASTIEN MEHAL

PRESENTATION

Born in 1970, and originally from Martinique, Sébastien Mehal is graduated of the École supérieure de Réalisation Audiovisuelle (ESRA Paris XV) in Paris (2000) and the Paris School of Architecture (1996).

Sébastien Mehal was personally touched by the development of the city and by the peculiarities and other quirks of urban life; he gets all his inspiration from it. The artist integrates into his works a real sociological and philosophical reflection staged in a minimalist style of his own.

The light bulb is the major figure in his work. It is the symbol of the impact of our society in inhabited areas. The notion of light embodies both the mental light of man and his vital energy. This object constitutes a central element even omnipresent of our environment.

In his most recent works, we observe the presence of splashes of liquid paints "injected" thanks to large industrial or medical syringes. While he only used flat textures, he is currently working on the creation of delicate reliefs that allow a play of light and depth, at the origin of an energy specific to the artwork.

Sébastien Mehal participated in numerous exhibitions and fairs around the world (Fiac, Art Paris, Art Basel, ...). He is present as well in collections in France and Japan.
