I partnered up with @Richy_Billion to create a series of paintings combining our unique styles into truly one of a kind works of art. The pieces combine techniques ranging from: Oil, Acrylic and Spray Paint, UV paint, 3D printing, gold leafing, automotive holographic flakes and resin.
Abut Richy: Growing up in El Paso TX, there was a lot of cultural influence that led me to where I am today. Whether it was the high end low rider clubs, my gang related uncle, or the noticeable difference between the poverty bracket and the black market riches all around me, I felt influenced. One thing I’ve always felt I could reach the upper echelon with is my creativity and what I can put into my artwork. With a street art and graffitti background, I’ve been able to create pieces that speak to my influences while simultaneously reflecting luxury. I draw from struggles, achievements, music, experiences that are my own and others. At the end of the day what you’ll see in all of my work is money. That’s my motivation like most people. That in itself is relatable to the population of this world. -Richy Billion
I partnered up with Jisbar after seeing his work on display in a gallery my work is also in. I love his style and unique take on pop culture icons. We are starting with one piece together and we'll see what happens from here. Jisbar is an artist born in 1989 working in Paris. For 10 years, his art has ironicly shifted the references of pop culture. His creations reactualize our society soaked by the media and references "geek" that he reinterprets with the keys of his universe. Fashion, music, the freestyle spirit of the skateboard world and the different means of expression that inhabit the streets are all elements that shape his style. Jisbar likes to say that each of his works represents "moments of life", like a memory that is immortalized in a photo album. This nostalgia for a past epoch and the angelicism of childhood, he freezes in his paintings where the power of the fundamental colors plays a preponderant role. This sincerity pushes the viewer to focus on every detail to understand the meaning. Jisbar is an artist who paints in urgency and applies to externalize this creative spontaneity. this allows him to compose the anecdotes that animate his daily life and the way he looks at our society while keeping his authenticity.
Born in Belgium in 1976, Leriche began his personal journey into Fine Art photography after years as a fashion photographer. This transformative decision allowed Leriche to delve into the rich layers of his profession. His work explores emotions, intentional or unconscious ideas and transforms them into gripping images. Leriche constructs his photographs layer by layer, with meticulous attention to detail. Taking the actual photo is but the final stage of a long, deliberate process, punctuated by flashes of inspiration. Leriche considers himself an art director first, and then a photographer.
Struggling between the authenticity of nature, and the artificiality of photography, Leriche finds a perfect balance in pushing the boundaries of the natural in his production studio. In a world dominated by mere appearance, social media posturing and superficiality, the driving force behind Leriche’s work is the desire to inject the rawness of nature into the seamless, controlled perfection of my photographs in order to undermine the facile gaze of viewers unaccustomed to scratching any deeper than the surface.
Leriche’s artistic method is a dramatic, ongoing and even vital process. His ultimate wish is that his artworks will also awaken viewers to a process of reconnection with the essential.
