2021, the end of the health crisis. We all dream of regaining our freedom. The vertical lines represent the return of a blue sky which gradually takes its place to offer us better days... This silkscreen is a reproduction of an original painting done in February 2021.

It is made on a sheet of fine cherry wood veneer. The veining of the natural wood is always different, so each copy is unique! Limited edition of 30 copies, numbered and signed.

The signature and numbering are on the bottom right. The date "2021" is at the bottom left of the silkscreen. This work is sold in a black American wooden box.

The artist


Laurent Minguet

Born in 1969


Laurent Minguet is a French multidisciplinary artist and designer born in 1969 in Toulouse where he lives and works.

Adept of acrylic on canvas from a very young age, he learns alone and paints only with a brush. Guided by automobile silhouettes, he perfected his hyperrealist style. From 1998, inspired by his first great travels, he focuses on landscapes marked by hyperurbanization. 

Laurent Minguet has surveyed several megalopolises in search of the best photographic angle of iconic or arbitrary places. In his studio, he will then methodically draw them in pencil and then paint them, thus making them remarkable by the balance of their contrasts. 

Since 2014, the supports he uses are of fine walnut, cherry or oak, raw or natural, which he carefully selects so that their random vintage reinforces the dynamics of an extremely detailed whole. The precise and essential line then freezes for a moment the agitation and architectural density of his graphic composition. 

To break the linearity of the noble wood, the artist will work the monochrome acrylic in opposition to the photorealistic precision of the painting, thus revealing the strength of his different interpretations. The continuity of the urban landscape recreated with the brush in the illusion of a natural transparency finally marks the culmination of the work.

"The singular sobriety of my painting superimposes hyperrealism and play of illusion, suggesting several prisms of vision." Laurent Minguet
