We popped by the studio of Parisian artist Pimax as he prepares for his upcoming group show ‘GOLDO Expo’ at Galerie Sakura.
The studio space which used to store graves is surrounded by giant spraycans, a lifesize dummy policeman, as well as melting sculptures and toys, king kong sculptures with rubicube twin towers.
Addicted to the 80’s Japanese manga TV series Goldorak, Pimax created his signature icon ‘Goldofuck’, a figurine portrayed in every possible situation. From stencils, paintings to resine casts, Pimax experiments with multiple supports.
Pimax also enjoys reinterpreting objects from the pop and manga culture into colourful melting sculptures. His ‘Impressionourf’ painting series is a tribute to the Impressionnism movement with his own twist.
