French Visual Artist Patrice Murciano catapults Pop Art into the New Millennium

It all started with makeup, his mother’s makeup.

Patrice Murciano was captivated by art from a very early age. As a child he would take his mother’s makeup and apply it to the back of old rolls of wallpaper abandoned in the attic. His experimental art style continued into his early-teens, experimenting very much with romantic nude paintings. He has always been attracted to the female figure and this is evident in many of his works. In the latter part of his ongoing art career he was introduced to American painter Jackson Pollock’s “dripping” art technique (dripping paint onto the canvas without touching it). This greatly influenced Patrice and gave him the perfect tool for emphasizing forms of the female figure in a creative and stylish manner. Patrice perfected the technique and made it into a signature and unique style. For this reason I say, Patrice Murciano catapulted pop art into the new millenium, by introducing to the world what he refers to as “pop grunge”. Simply breathtaking.
