Sunday Evening Art Gallery — Shaka — Marchal Mithouard

French artist Shaka (Marchal Mithouard) explores a wild intersection between painting, sculpture and graffiti with his colorfully explosive base-relief sculptures that seem to cross from the canvas into reality.

In his compositions, bodies are jostled about, represented in permanent imbalance, destabilized by a natural or human force.

The objective is to reveal, through classical themes (The Ascension) or basic human emotions (selfishness or anger) human relationships and the absurdity of certain behaviors that typify our society.

By depicting these powerful yet fragile bodies, the artist expresses his own contradictions, but more importantly the complexity of human nature.

His artistic playground includes building murals, paintings, and sculpture.

  1. I agree how you have mentioned that it is as if these sculptures cross from canvas to reality. Love how the artist is telling such tales almost wordlessly, just with the medium of colour and tangles. Thanks for sharing this 🙂
