The unique use and adjustment of the human body together with geometrical shapes is something French artist Amose is famous about. The mystical feelings and vibe that artist found in South American culture are incorporated in his tribal characters. He doesn’t let his work to be limited by street walls, so he uses access to studios, and technology like computers to produce various artworks, such as screen prints, paintings, illustrations, sculptures, and graffiti. Some viewers define the theme of his pieces as running, but it is much more than that, common forms are twisted, lines are stretched, faceless people are created. The artist was born in 1979 in Croix in the north of France. However in 1996 Amose started to learn illustration at the Institut St. Luc in Tournai in Belgium, after which he studied graphic design at the Beaux Art. During this period he got the technical base that he used more than good in his upcoming diverse artistic projects. At the same time painter’s inquisitiveness, especially in what is going around him, in artistic magazines, comics, and books make him question what art is and what it means. In 2003 by being inspired by the tribal art, made of simple shapes and graphic lines that he saw in Brazilian graffiti’s, the artist began to incorporate many flat figures and different motives into his paintings. Amose’s style reminds of Giacometti sculptures, with a note of Kandinsky paintings, finally processed with a touch of the urban influence. The impression that his prints leave are combined, to some, they have a minimalistic look, for other, they color everyday gloomy reality.
