About Baptiste


The protagonist Icarus, the Mannerism of the Renaissance and the symbol of sublime power Air Force One -the plane of the American President- are the main points in this work.

The combination of pathos, beauty and unnatural movement of Italian Mannerists concealing some aggression.

Is it why this ‘Superman” flies straight down towards the earth” Here it’s used the tacker as a material and media, which plays with the contemporary agression and the profanized utility of the everyday life.

@Darlene

The drawing is made out of the staples.

I like the drawing of the guy coming out of the wall. Quite creative. The staples don't do much for me.

MY REVIEW
pic a; gathering strenght for self defence through acrobatics.
pic b; function in an articulated way

awesome! must take a lot of patience. :)

Unique and original. This is one of the coolest things I've seen on here!

Thats one patient guy, im rather jealous.

Magnifico~

oh damnnn..

When I fist saw it I thought it was a reference to Michelangelo's "Creation of Adam" on the Sistine ceiling...Adam is still reaching, but falling. Still neat after reading the description given, but I like thinking of it as Adam. Gives the work a nice ring of "humanity warned" while still having a youthful play on medium that keeps it from feeling blatant. Good work.
