Francois Chartier

One of Chartier’s most striking subjects is that of childhood memorabilia crowded together and painted larger-than-life in his unique airbrush technique. Looking at his paintings can be a nostalgic joy as familiar characters from Batman to Corky are half-hidden among the colourful chaos. Yet it is not just that his work sparkle with a certain humour, because they are also bathed in a magical light. From coloured glass and marbles, to glossy metals and plastics, the paintings echo Chartier’s journey to understand such reflective and transparent surfaces, and to convey his sense of wonder and intrigue over them.
