SUMO

Peinture
Présentation: 

Christian Pearson, plus connu par les aficionados du « street-art » sous le pseudonyme de « Sumo » est aujourd'hui une figure incontournable de l'art contemporain. Son style se caractérise par des coups de pinceau épais et des couleurs vives, incorporant des dessins animés à des symboles de la culture populaire contemporaine. Influencé par les pochettes dʼalbums de métal, le design des skateboards des années 90, le pop art et les graffitis, ses oeuvres pétillent sur la toile.
