muralist, painter, illustrator
Nova Dead eats comics for breakfast. Apart from his love for the illustrative, he’s also fascinated by the cosmos and the laws of the universe and strongly influenced by ancient African traditions of the Dogon and Mongo tribes which are also part of his roots.
As a self-taught artist he envelops movement, speed, dynamism, a retro-futuristic space-time into his art. His paintings reflect a dynamic sensation by the deformation of geometric shapes, occasional entanglements of circles in spirals, elliptical curves or even hyperboles. It questions the visual apprehension of movement, acceleration and energy.
That ‘speed’ is denoted by a scribble where violently contrasting light plays its part, producing an image that mainly consists between the range of fluorescent and phosphorescent values.
Nova Dead brings out the life of his painting (with a wink to the Futurists) by showing the vibrations that link a subject to its environment. A pictorial process leading the public to recognize representations of space and acceleration outside the traditional pattern of time.
