Born in 1970, Cedric Bouteiller studied Fine Arts and Philosophy in Marseilles, Aix-en-Provence. As a passionate traveler, the artist uses photographs that he took while walking through major cities, transforms them and creates striking abstractions. Architectural elements of cities like New York, Shanghai, Paris and Marseilles are accompanied with different symbols - a tag, a sign, human figures, and are later altered by new technologies, collage, graphic design, drawing and painting. Bouteiller takes inspiration from consumerism at its most obvious and turns it on its head, using humor and irony.
