Man-X chairs

Yves Saint-Laurent Walk


"My multi-layered stencil technique is to select several colors presented in a design, then create a stencil based on each of them. Superimposed and curved, they will form a work. Then, I have fun to superimpose my various creations which will tell a story.... I wanted to stage several eras on my chair, to pay tribute to certain artists who represented the beautiful beaches of Normandy, while keeping my "stencil" style with my touch of humor. The bourgeois families of the 19th century made me think of Eugène Boudin, the bathers of the 1930s to the photographs of Robert Doisneau, and the designer Jean-Paul Gauthier and his marine icons."

Born in Rouen, Man-X Man-X lived in Fécamp where he created in 2002 the association "Art hétéroclite" specialized in graffiti to promote street art. He started working as a computer graphic designer at the age of 18, then turned to his current profession, stone cutting. After fifteen years of mostly urban creation, Man-x decided in 2009 to cut his first stencil. His favorite themes are: his children - his personal environment. He then revisits music groups, hijacked posters, etc.. The choice of the support remains for this artist very broad. With practice, the cuts become more and more meticulous, the fineness of detail of his stencils shows the patience of this young artist.
