Arteum presents "TV Watchers", an exclusive series of five lithographs signed by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac printed on Rives grain paper in limited editions of 150 copies by the Idem workshop, the most illustrious Parisian printing house that has collaborated with great artists such as Picasso, Chagall, Matisse or David Lynch.
"We are all angels, angels of light or shadow, we are all TV Watchers, fascinated and conditioned by the surge of images of a thousand truths, on billions of screens.
Jean-Charles de Castelbajac
His polymorphous inspirations are at the border of the invisible. From medieval art to Pop Art or heraldry, from which his palette is nourished, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac crystallizes primary colors and gives them life like a standard in movement. As Henri Matisse said so well "I feel by the color, it is thus by it that my canvas will be always organized". These three unique colors resulting from no mixture have become his DNA, his obsession, lasting and inscribed in time. Colors which are transgressed by the black coming to embrace the emptiness of a continuous line creating the accident and the fusion of the mediums.
Tracer of angels, the multidisciplinary artist likes to draw and divert them on all supports. With chalk in the streets, on canvas or paper, anywhere and anytime. These beings, tributes to the living and the dead, are lonely lovers, punks from the past, ghosts or TV Watchers, emanating from his encounters, his collaborations, his friendships or his inspirations.
Creator of timeless works, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac likes to divert current art and signs here five works where everyone will be able to project himself and recreate his own history, his own identity.
