Guillaume Chiron is a French artist who enjoys making humorous collages inspired by domestic life in the 1950s. The urban context is invaded by characters enlarged in scale in a paradoxical way, which literally take possession of the scene: the effect is surreal and humorous. Mountains pierced by sewing machines, scavengers that “clean up traffic” and elegant women emerge from a mountain.
The contrast between contemporary landscapes and oversized figures transports us to a completely surreal and timeless context. The shiny colors, usually placed in the background of the compositions, contribute to give a pop art touch to the creations.
You immediately notice not only the influence of the cinema language of the 50s but also the one linked to the aesthetics of the advertising of those years.
