Date added: 22 Feb 2019 NATURAL COINCIDENCES

Oak wood, acrylic paint

 

‘Natural Coincidences’ is a series of 45 hand painted oak wood modules designed by Damien Poulain for Arco, using wood left-overs from their factory. Five different modules sizes were created, cut to size, using harmonious measures. The painting of the modules refers to the shape of nature, the roots, to allow anyone to create their own coincidental totems.


Over Damien

Damien Poulain is a graphic artist responding to various invitations, exploring design and architecture. Damien Poulain’s work develops in a transversality influenced by shintoist, tribal and heraldic symbols. In his practice, he uses materials such as textile, spray paint, sculpture, and architectural volumes to develop a work targeting the meaning of community and the tools of its beliefs. His work invests and promotes positive feelings in building communities and he wishes through his projects to bring people together. At the same time, he intends to raise questions about contemporary popular culture’s practices, in collaborative approaches between the artist and local artisans and resources. He has gained international recognition – commercially and artistically – with work for clients including Dazed & Confused, KesselsKramer, Adidas and Uniqlo, solo shows in London at Kemistry Gallery and KK Outlet, in Tokyo at Calm and Punk Gallery and Claska, and group shows at the Museum of Graphic Design in Breda, Holland.
