Baptiste César

Born in 1983

My artistic practice is multifaceted. The direction it takes changes with each new idea. Whether using installation, sculpture, drawing, painting, video, performance or writing, I try to maintain a poetic approach to my environment and to what is happening in it by producing both an intimate and universal message. My artistic work often happens on impulse and "in situ". An idea comes to me as I walk through a specific location, which I then develop by researching information and anecdotes. The work of art then goes through the successive processes of inspiration, conception, search for materials and space, making, and exhibition. This series of protean works enables me to offer a comprehensive ensemble that indirectly triggers a thought mechanism. My artwork is inspired by a great number of artists, as well as alternative culture, underground networks, cinema, and comics.
