Contemporary art created by Antoine Helbert fascinates us for its creativity, unexpected figures, colorful paintings that captivates everyone attention.
Hybrids is a series of illustrations combining the features of animals and people.
In Hybrides, Helbert applies the less glamorous scaly feet and caruncles of birds to humans, and the combs and bright feathers of male birds to female humans. It is not clear in each illustration whether the bird additions are costume, growth, or innate to the humans: in some it is a complete cover of feathers over skin; in others, it seems like the coloration or texture could be makeup or accessory.
Antoine Helbert’s works are certainly creative and interesting images; however, they’re a little on the creepy side. The pictures remind me of something you might see in movie or a magic world like the ‘Chronicles of Narnia’?
Historical evocations, the medieval scenes, imaginary universes multiply are helbert’s inspiration. ; He learned all his skills at School of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg. He enters very young, its passion for painting, design, illustration, lead him into a degree as… an interior designer!
No form of expression stand along in this disconcerting artist. Complex, brilliant, seems words that aren’t able to fulfill his artistic work.
