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 checking my website :)
I am Amaury Bouquet, an artist based in Berlin, Germany. I am passionate about creation - loving everything from conceptual to visual work. I also love travelling, meditating and engaging with collectives projects and communities.
Before getting more seriously in the field of creation, I completed a Master degree in Business Administration and used those skills to manage a social innovation hub in Marseille, France. I completed my studies with a certification in Social Entrepreneurship and a certification in UI / UX Design.
As an artist, I create illustrations, 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. My work encompasses the joyful transgression of public space through murals, bringing back elements of nature into the urban landscapes, to the creation of participatory art experiences.
I am also the co-founder of the interdisciplinary collective BIMBIM.
