Nicolas Bianco is a French self-taught artist. Born in Nice, he is imbued with the work of outstanding artists of the school of Nice, Klein, Arman, Cesar, Sosno, Ben and other Venet with whom he discovered, very young, contemporary art and its power to transgress the very notion of a work of art.
Attracted by volumes, he turned to sculpture as a means of privileged expression. His main interests are the symbols and icons of popular culture and street culture that rocked his childhood and adolescence during the 80s and 90s.
He gives shape to his memories in his marble sculptures, a kind of precious ?ready-made? that revives the past years.
The material object is at the center of attention but the artist wants to transcend it, he wants to expand its framework and delay as much as possible its definition. The simple object then becomes an energy, an emotion, an era ?
Always eager for new experiences, Nicolas Bianco has developed his personal aesthetic using innovative and bold techniques and images. It puts in scene in a luminous way the great classics with a modern and stripped writing. His series of objects "Nostalgia" represents each year of his youth by the symbolic object of learning and evolution of life such as ?the lego? or ?basketball hoop?...
To give life to his works, he uses noble and raw materials, marble has become obvious and the gold that comes to underline it. His lines are timeless, his marble works awaken in us a positive nostalgia.
