Pimax (b. 1975) is a performer activist who came through an offbeat world, eager of experiences, graffiti and electronic music. He is a founder of « Toulouse Hardcore Sound System », underground collective born in the early 90’s. He now occupies a special place in the world of street art. He plays with codes of contemporary art and revisits the option of stencils and resin sculptures, themes of the eighties.
This applies to his series of sculptures Campbell and red resin, nod to Andy Warhol, cast on various objects from the collective memory. Darth Vader Star Wars survivor, the cherub hedonistic or the bird caught in an oil spill… Through his work emerges a scathing critique of the consumer society, quid the packaging of all kinds hanging from the ceiling of his studio, creating a pop chaotic universe in which he lives and works surrounded by his creations. These packages serve as inspiration and models from which he draws his molds. All of his creations invite a reflection on time. The moment is frozen, as a captive of its resins or his stencils. The energy of his works always refers to the strength of our memories and representations of our imagination gathering an audience of several generations.
These two mythical characters from the 20th century pop culture are frequently found on walls throughout the city of Paris. In parallel with this graphic and generous universe, PIMAX brings to life and develops the legend of Nourf Nourf, the urban red dog who grew up and evolves in the city of concrete and gray; he constructs the ideal world in his imaginary city.
