Emmanuel Hyronimus / New artist! / Paris, France

Welcome to an authentic artist with playful yet strong and imposing creations!

For him, it is a way of questioning the world, appropriating it and restoring it with energy. Characters or landscapes, imaginary or realism, social criticism or graphic poetry, his falsely naïve line unfolds his thoughts and invites us to follow him in his imagination filled with pop and classical culture. His drawings explore and express, allowing him to extend the realm of possibilities and to explore in a curious way.
