Freehand by Florian Lévy
See Florian Lévy's amazing artwork 'Freehand' and find out the inspiration behind his project.
Born in 1985, Florian Lévy evolves in his own artistic world made of photography, graphic design and various types of work. His background in jewelry, knowledge of art history and design shine through his creations. In 2001, Florian begins to self-train in image editing and eventually becomes, in 2008, a freelance graphic designer. Nowadays he mainly focuses on developing his proper artistic talent using the label of “creative”. His graphic and minimalist works are intensified in his own way with strong editing and digital painting. His sensitivity is exulted in metaphors and allegories full of plant and esoteric symbolic.
Satirical is the critique of modern society, human relationships are faced with our beliefs, life, death, powers, technology, love or sex. So many concepts explored with a hand for personification. It is a symbol of donation and paradoxically domination. Freehand - meaning "à main levée" in French (understand "hand lifted") - point out the aerial compositions but also supports the notion of digital painting since performed using a graphics tablet, freehand. Immaculate white.
Cartels inlaid at the bottom right on the visual of the series are reminiscent of the periodic table of chemical elements, also called Mendeleev table. As an imaginary continuation of the 118 items listed, the themes are singled out and hide a double symbolic reading. "Let go" invites to letting go of our fears and unconscious enchained us.
Be curious, take inspiration everywhere but always goes further than the obvious feeling.
