Born in 1977, French artist Auguste hails from the famed and beautiful Bordeaux region of France.
Though he studied disciplines other than fine arts, Auguste always felt compelled and drawn to the art world. Ultimately he followed his passion for the visual arts, finding his unique artistic vision and voice and is now known for his colourful contemporary Pop Art inspired and nostalgia evoking works.
Auguste terms his oeuvres “Generations” as his works revolve around a central theme of pop culture icons from the past. Conjuring memories of previous eras, his pieces depict celebrities, super heroes, and other iconic figures in conjunction with American and French marks to provide the viewer with a reminiscent glimpse of past epochs.
Working with a variety of materials, Auguste uses an unusual medium of aluminium along with digital collage, collages, and acrylic paint and uses automotive varnish to give his works a modern glossy finish. He places importance on form and shape.
Auguste is collected around the world. He is also in the important collection of Leonardo DiCaprio.
