Born in 1966 in the south of France, "Kikayou" has always wanted to create, mark a world in his image, teeming with energy, teeming with ideas but devoid of any pretension.
Creator of lighting, light sensor, collages, the artist turns to his creative desires and places his creations on canvas. Inspired by the work of Basquiat, the Pop Art of Warhol, the collages of Villeglé, the fury of Dali ... the artist takes us into "his" pictorial world, between street-art and urban art. A joyful, impulsive art where at the heart of his works a chaos inexorably takes us towards a future full of promise. What does the artist mean to us, if not that we must enjoy, live, try ... He who wishes to discover a world delivers his works to us, a clever mix of performances, strengths and life. The viewer wanders between oblivion and memory, dream and sleep, traces of life and ... tries, work after work, to appropriate the artistic language of the artist.
Here he finds images, he finds his memory and feels alive. Vivant Kikayou proves it to us every moment, both in terms of physical experimentation, work on the unconscious but also through the choice of materials used. Painting, work of life, between forgetfulness, memory and dreams, he never ceases to take us on the path of experiences, giving birth to all our senses. A true delight of colors and sensations which will lead you to your own questions, concerns, excitement, obsessions… KIKAYOU does not ask all its questions; he paints in the Basque country surrounded by his large family and continues to create his fanciful universe in line with the conception of his life, and some ingredients ... talent, imagination, feelings and relevance.
