Cedric Bouteiller – Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat

Cedric Bouteiller, Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat is a unique mixed-media piece with resin on metal.

It portrays Andy Warhol together with Jean-Michel Basquiat photographed in New York  on July 10th, 1985 by Michael Halsband. Basquiat and Warhol were famous for being soulmates. During the photoshoot they decked out in boxing gear, throwing wan punches at each other, suggesting a certain artistic combat that was at least in part staged for the benefit of the cameras and mutual myth making.

Bouteiller’s piece depicts the photograph on top of a background made by dollars. The greyscale image is made out of a collection of little images of Warhol and Basquiat. On top of it there are splashes of vibrant orange and white paint.

Bouteiller’s work has been exhibited internationally, in many group and one-man shows, including the ones in the Fabien Castanier Gallery in Los Angeles, Artemisia Gallery in New York and Art-Addict Gallery in Biarritz, France. Recently, his art reached record breaking prices at several auction.

Born in 1970, Cedric Bouteiller studied Fine Arts and Philosophy in Marseilles, Aix-en-Provence. As a passionate traveler, the artist uses photographs that he took while walking through major cities, transforms them and creates striking abstractions. Architectural elements of cities like New York, Shanghai, Paris and Marseilles are accompanied with different symbols – a tag, a sign, human figures, and are later altered by new technologies, collage, graphic design, drawing and painting. Bouteiller takes inspiration from consumerism at its most obvious and turns it on its head, using humor and irony.
