Description

Cedric Bouteiller, Rihanna is a unique mixed-media piece with resin on metal. It depicts the pop music icon – Rihanna.

Cedric Bouteiller has created her portrait out of multiple small greyscale photographs of her. He then painted it over with white paint. Within the 10 years since the start of her musical career, Rihanna (1988) has become the youngest solo artist to score 14 no. 1 singles on the billboard hot 100—the fastest to do so—she’s sold more than 54 million albums and 210 million tracks worldwide. Rihanna is the “best selling digital artist of all time… with more than 100 million gold & platinum song certifications” and an eight-time grammy award winner who also counts 14 billboard music awards among other countless music accolades.

Aside from her musical achievements, Rihanna is bona fide business woman with multiple entrepreneurial ventures. However, most importantly, her undeniable cultural influence has forever imprinted her in history as a global icon despite her young age.

Cedric Bouteiller is a French multidisciplinary urban artist, known for his complex, layered mixed-media works. The artist incorporates various elements of his images, layers them and raises digital printing to a new level.

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.

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.
