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 works 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 are a  journey to understand reflective and transparent surfaces, and to convey his sense of wonder and intrigue over them.
