Philippe Pasqua hits London gallery with his controversial works of art
Here is a great treat for our Arty Types readers who like to experience raw and exposing art. The exhilarating works of controversial French Artist Philippe Pasqua will be on show at The Opera Gallery in London from today – not to be missed!
Dubbed one of the major artists of his generations, Pasqua uses the constraints and stereotypes of society as his inspiration, exploring the issues surrounding disability, sexual orientation, obscenity and more – just see below!
Weaved within the exhibition are pieces from Pasqua’s renowned and slightly disturbing collection “Vanitas”. The eerie human skulls are represented in various ways – dipped in chrome, covered in gold or silver and painted white with colourful butterflies poised on the top. Some skulls can even be bound in leather if desired!
Although, some may find his work outrageous or strange, I find Pasquas’ sculptures and paintings epic, oozing beauty and celebratory of the human form in so many ways.
So if you’re as moved as I am and want find out more about this exciting Artist, you have from today to 15th February to enjoy the exhibition at The Opera Gallery, which can be found at 134 New Bond Street in West London – do let us know what you think!
