Combining symbolic elements of the figurative and the
abstract, French artist Christian Perez de Carvasal
creates stunning canvases that reflect all the movement
and energy intrinsic to city life. Inspired by a childhood
in Paris, the artist paints sprawling scenes highlighting
the majesty of modern architecture and the dynamism
of crowded sidewalks and streets. Yet interspersed amid
his urban landscapes are peaceful humanlike creatures
which serve in juxtaposition to the harried pace that
commonly defines city life. He explains, “I am inspired
by urban life, people in motion, architecture and colors.
My mission is to provoke emotional and political
reflections and visual expressions.”

One of the hallmarks of Carvasal’s work is his use of
pure color accentuated with rich, complex textures. His
powerful hues are set in edgy compositions that rely on
a distinct use of line and geometric form. By combining
a variety of techniques and forms, he is able to infuse
his cityscapes with new meanings, bridging the
mythologies of urban life to explore the depth of
experience within.

“I am an artist who combines symbolism with the figurative and
the abstract on canvas. I use a variety of art forms/techniques
and I mostly paint with knives to keep the colors as pure as
possible. My main source of inspiration is large cities with their
dynamic and modern architecture. I have always been fascinated
by them, being a product of urban life myself, having grown up in
Paris, close to the Eiffel Tower, and seeing the different scenes of
Parisian life clearly contributed to my artistic choices. In my work
I try to show the peace and quiet you cannot create in busy city life
by adding human-life creatures in different contexts. The idea is
to provoke emotional and political reflections in my audience.”
