DODO OSE: Artist
Dodo Ose is a Montreal based graffiti and fine artist who specializes in highly rendered surreal portraiture.
Born in Lyon, Dodo was initiated to art since his early age, passing long hours admiring the rich architecture of the city. He passed his adolescence in the south of France, where he develops his artistical skills and his taste for graffitis. He studies plastic arts in Cannes and he starts exhibiting his art in galleries. Driven by challenges, he decides to pursue his career in Montréal. Thrilled with the city creative atmosphere, he discovers there a real family within the A’Shop and K6A crew, two multidisciplinary collectives. He develops his own style and creates his own universe, blending the deepness of aerosol painting, the strength and the contrast this technique offers, to the soft and soothing colors of watercolors. Two techniques at the antipodes, that he manages to sublime. As innovating in his technique, as in the choice of his subjects, his pieces of art take the public in a surrealistic world, as romantic as oneiric, breathing the edgy sense of humor of the artist or his highly poetical touch. He imagines and creates pieces of art that associate the figurative to the imaginary. Trying to hand over the abstracts feelings that dances under our eyelid, his work inspire the Jungian energy of poetry and fantasy.
