Surprising contemporary art by Lionel Scoccimaro

Lionel Scoccimaro is a French-born artist born in 1973. Still based in his birthplace, the sculptor, surfer and biker explore contemporary art in a different way.

His art covers the ways in which globalisation brings the margins from what was once counterculture, such as surfing, skateboarding, motorcycling, at the centre. He is one of the iconoclasts who break with cherished values and traditions and became a style icon, that the society aspires to emulate. His work bridges the gap between ‘low culture’ and the high Art world.

Lionel combines technology and surf. With visual references and material techniques associated with biker and surf culture, his work alludes to exotic Tiki imagery and Neo-Voodoo culture, which were prominent elements in the American surf scene of the fifties and the sixties.

Scoccimaro’s demand to fulfil his role as a sculptor coupled with formal efficacy led him to articulate a discussion between materials and various scales in his work. Scoccimaro’s work plays with these appropriations, using contemporary society’s interest in clever, self-referential irony and post-modernism, to hint at how the darker elements of our past can catch up with us in the present. He offers us provoking insights wrapped in playful packages of pop-age veneers.

Since 2001 his work has manipulated social expectations through the medium of photography and sculpture. His works are nostalgic of a past era of counterculture that has been diluted by globalization.
