Aurel Prevost / 1980 / Besançon / France
Contemporary urban artist, Aurel Prevost also know as Aurel Rubbish lives and works in Besançon, France. The artist work is about paper-cut and it's technique. Each paper-cut requires hundreds of hours of careful cutting out by hand, and still arouses strong emotions when you have the chance to cross one of them in the street ... Very impregnated by the surrounding nature, Aurel opens the doors of this abundant flora, paralleling the Art Nouveau style that cultivates and clearly visible in his paper-cut . As in his new ‘Metamorphosis’ series, where man and flora merge. ‘Métamorphoses d’Ovide.’ The Artist nourishes each of his works with various references drawn from painting, religious icons and tattoo art. His sometimes-corrosive universe captures our attention, but his poetry sweeps us away.
"My artistic practice is a way of expressing a personal story, to focus my emotions and artistic influences ...."
