Chufy

Born in 1994 in Geneva. Chufy is a autodidact artist who started painting after his apprenticeship in graphic design. He quickly became fascinated by the architecture and the techniques of its creation, which are perspective and modular volume.

He will very quickly use this process of mechanical perspective based on a mathematical model to create his own works. He then discovered and became passionate about art architects such as El Lissitzky, Vasarely or Escher, using mathematics and certain absolute rules in their creative processes.

Since then, he has developed his own artistic language. Sensitive to the aesthetics and purity of mathematical and physical models, he developed a creative process - a three-point perspective - that he adapted for the creation of large-format canvases, thus allowing him to have total control over the result of his work, leaving little room for chance. From the construction of his compositions, he plays at faking the true spatial dimension.

Using these three dimensions, he draws according to the lines of leaks, guiding him towards a sketch that is both dictated and where the possibilities are infinite.

Each painting is built as it goes along, like an architecture that is being drawn, where the elements intertwine with others, taking into account existing spaces, thus creating paths, passages and openings.

Its creative process and approach therefore become as important as the final result of the work. He seeks to disturb the viewer's perception by inventing his own reality, he describes structures, appropriates them and

transform them. He invites people to get lost to find and to search to discover.

From these different journeys, he transcribes in his approach, the representation of architecture of cities that are both ordered and so complicated to understand. Where sometimes it is good to get lost, to find your own way to make way for discovery and the unexpected.

The result is the representation of a distorted reflection, playing on the way the brain analyses an image and shows that what happens there is nothing more than an individual interpretation.

Creating the call of emptiness while suggesting infinite perspectives, it is indirectly questioning the human being on his paradoxes, his ambivalent relationship to time and materiality.
