Yannick Fournié was born in Pau, in 1972. He now lives and works in Biarritz, France.
Yannic’s painting uses hyper realism techniques and range from acrylic resin to oil work. His work touches on themes of power, violence and the dictatorship of the consumer society and media while mixing it up with references of his generation.
Yannick explains the work by saying, “I belong to a rich and dense generation where everything jostles with everything else: Pop Art, Comics, Street Art, the brilliance of the Internet and social networking, of reality television, contemporary audiovisual trash. I am the euphoric, baffled witness to a social, economic and ecological disintegration that I sometimes find beautiful.”
