INTERVIEW WITH TEHOS
Why did you choose art to express yourself?
This is a natural way to express my thoughts and my feelings. The field is wider (I think) with speech, limited by the words, certain emotions have difficulty beings transcribed language, it’s easier for me with pictures, with a mink.
Since when do you paint?
Since forever, but it is 40 years since I decided to stop everything and devote myself fully, I did not want to risk getting to the end of my life telling me that I had missed some something important.
This is a difficult decision because it is no possible return, a risk that I had to take.
What are your inspirations in your directions and painting in your art in general?
I had initially and intuitively the need to express something inside, what we find in my work until 2007, then the news has taken precedence, I wanted to talk about what I saw around me. this is particularly what is transcribed in the exhibition American dream, and the work that followed this period.
Why did you choose to treat the subject with paper, and why did you close the pop art?
I discovered the usefulness of the paper as a work of art in 2007 at some point I was no longer able to finance my colors, so I first used newspapers to make my paintings. There was also a form of recycling that was not uninteresting. The success was immediate.
Pop art on the orientation, it is not quite the case, I would say it is rather a post pop art, he had something to do with current events exacerbated by economic problems our time. I thought the pop art was the best way to allude to it, while destroying it, as something antiquated, it’s a bit wanting mean the end of an era, Pop art is used here, ripped, sanded, it is a trend of a bygone period.
Can know but above all to read newspaper articles in each painting, it is them who give meaning to the work, I was sometimes accused of redoing the same painting, in fact there is an aesthetic envelope, flashy, but the message is revealed by reading newspaper articles inserted in each painting, at this moment the work takes on another dimension. Ben and others artists have understood very well when they came to the exhibition American dream,
You also worked on digital works and why this approach works kinetics ?
The first time I was actually confronted with digital art, was at an event organized in 2009 by artist Patrick Moya in Nice at MUSEAAV, it was a demonstration in duplex with second life, the vidjing (video mixing ), and music, I was immediately seduced by the impact of this work.
I then began to study and familiarize myself second life more generally to digital art, I discovered that I could use it as a medium, and as inspiration for a new direction of my work. you can see some video that i have done in second life here : http://www.youtube.com/tehosart
After a few months I created the Immersive suspensions, as I explained several times in several countries. This is a digital film, and images from the film.
Meanwhile, several studies have been made by working from a mix of paintings and digital works.
Over time I became interested in 3D tools more sophisticated goods that second life, this is how projects are born of kinetic sculptures of trees, which won the Jury Prize IAA UNESCO in December 2011, and Bubbles in the vortex. These new mediums (this is for me to mediums as well as painting) are a very inspiring and open fields of action yet unequaled for the artist and art in general.
What is important in your work?
What is important is certainly to express something, to convey an emotion, but no matter how to put it, provided it is sincere.
