Digital & traditional painting
"I've got this mission to put colors and lines out there, trying to add my part of intensity into this world with images and ideas..."
Ladislas is a French Artist that is working both Digitally and Traditionally. He learned to paint "Digitally" before even starting to try to paint Traditionally on canvas. Experimenting on the screen, playing with the endless possibilities of the Digital medium, the goal is to mix the 2 approaches and fuel the creativity each of these 2 techniques.
Ladislas is a French Artist based in «Barcelona». Specialized in «Colorful and detailed Art», Ladislas is a kind of «graphic chameleon» that is working both digitally and traditionally, mixing various techniques to experiment and create vivid and bold Artworks, full of details that are reflecting his vision of the world.
Attracted by images since a young age, creation has taken a big place in his life since childhood (from drawing/customization of sneakers, bags, to creating and playing music in a band for 11 years...).
After studying Art for years in school, he began to work freelance and funded its own studio.
Self -Taught in the Drawing and painting Field, He learned «Digital Painting» on the web watching Tutorials on YouTube and being inspired with Artists from All around the World.
Ladislas started to work as an Illustrator. A lot of experimenting was necessary to find his own graphical language, but progressively various elements, themes and graphic signature began to emerge in his work:
"Colorful imagery, Portraits, Pop Culture, Plants, Animals, Insects, Street Culture and Design"...
Ladislas is creating a mashup of all these elements to find his own graphical language and express himself through painting.
The painting technique on the digital medium is almost the same as the traditional one: Everything is hand drawn and painted using its "graphic tablet". No photograph or photographic textures are included in his images. Everything is painted like a classic painter would do but with the freedom and new opportunities that Digital software and creation allows.
In parallel to his digital work, Ladislas began to paint on canvas and transfer his knowledge learned in Digital Art into Traditional. He uses various mediums such as "watercolor", “acrylics”, “water based markers” and “spray-paint” to build his images and paintings. No matter the medium, digital or traditional, Ladislas is willing to transfer his vision of the society and world and share his love for living as well as raising awareness toward the preservation on planet Earth by showing its richness and diversity.
