statement

 

Bruno is a digital artist. He uses virtuality to confuse and question our perception of an image.
He loves to make real what is not, and unreal what is. A qualified architect, he has created a vast number of illustrations and CGIs for all kinds of projects in various countries over the last 25 years. Since moving to London 10 years ago, his work has been exploring the fine line in between Architecture and Art. His fascination for virtual images pushes him to challenge what lies between illusion and reality.

When he represents what looks like a photo of a scene he wants you to think about what you are seeing. Are you looking at a photo of reality or a computer generated image of the photo of a virtual scene ?

Through his work he wants to always make the viewer wondering what is in front of him. What am I looking at? This question is already part of the artistic process he is developing with the viewer.Is it a hand drawing overlaid on top of an existing photo, what is real, what is fake? Is everything virtual? From his visualiser background Bruno understood that the more a drawing or an image becomes as real as the reality, the degree of confusion and misunderstanding is paradoxically maximum for the viewer.He has decided to play with this idea.

Moreover he would like to demonstrate that Digital Art is not only abstract minimal computer generated shapes colours or movements but that there are other facets to be explored. When he draws a portrait he likes capturing only one or very few characteristics of a person.From those few lines he adds layers and layers mixing various hand drawings digital tools with 3D models he made, Sometimes he is using a drawing he previously did as a texture that is applied on another drawing or on a model that is part of the scene. Everything you may see on his work is actually and genuinely produced by himself.
