Natur-O-mancie is a collective tarot experience created in collaboration with Paul Brunstein-Compard. The tarot deck is made of ten large format cards representing our ecosystem from the micro (the molecule) to the macro (the solar system). The experience invites participants to share their stories, dance and reflect on a specific question that they formulated altogether.See the art project >
Supernatural is a collaboration with ambiant / downtempo musician Wild Anima. We created this installation for the release of her album "Supernatural". Supernatural installation is a soft space made of large scale paper cuts and lights to immerse the space with shades of wild flora. The music is the product of a collaboration between Wild anima and Master Plants Orchestra, mixing sounds from the album with plant generated music.See the art project >
VISIONS is an ode to our nightlife psychic journeys. While dancing on the beats and sounds of electronic music - eyes closed - our minds take us on a visual trip. Kaleidoscopic colours appear forming ephemeral symbols and choreographies. The poster scene for clubs and concerts is extremely active in Berlin, Germany. VISIONS is a series of paper cuts made out of those posters taken from the streets. The combination of symbols with the patterns of the posters offer a variety of visions for our imagination to dive into.See the artworks >
In this series "Les Cabanes de l'Imaginaire", I combine the visual elements that mark me on a daily basis to project them onto these ritual masks. Trying not to forget its roots - both successes and failures - this society of the future therefore appropriates our current cultural elements (architecture, objects, symbols) to constitute its own. In doing so, it incorporates into its masks an ecosystem logic specific to Nature, capable of proposing interactions between the economic system, the anthroposphere and the biosphere.See the artworks >
In this series of illustrations, I re-create the famous herbarium out of imagined flowers. The mandala shapes convey a feeling of peacefulness while helping in building graphically pleasant aesthetics. This series of illustrations was then brought to the streets in the form of paste-ups. A playful reference to the hippies times which I carry in my heart.See the artworks >
In 2012, I started to get into drawing and painting with more dedication. This year I also went onto a long trip of 6 months, visiting countries in Asia and America. This was a beautiful experience, that I had the chance to share with a couple of friends, and it worked as a confirmation of my desire to create more art. During this trip I had an illustrated diary and also made my first mural in Mexicali, Mexico !! So much fun ... and adrenaline :)See the artworks >
And thanks for reading this.
I am Amaury, a french artist based in Berlin, Germany. I love travelling, meditating and engaging with collective projects.
I see my artistic work as a way to improvise cultural forms and bond people poetically - a culture that connects us with our deeper nature and enables us to safely and playfully share our feelings and attempts for a better life. A vulnerable social sculpture soaked in watercolours.
As a visual artist, I create illustrations, paintings, paper cuts, masks and murals that play with the forms and meanings of symbols. Both mediums, pictorial symbolism or symbolic actions are representations of our collective psyche and each individual history.
I am also the founder of the interdisciplinary collective BIMBIM.
BIMBIM creates introspective art-experiences — immersive, participatory and playful artistic environments that invite and encourage the exploration of our inner selves!
