About the artwork

This mixed media work by Auguste features a myriad of pop culture icons, including characters from the Dragon Ball franchise, and the iconic logos of Rolls Royce and Coca Cola. Meanwhile, a cutout silhouette of Dragon Ball Z character Goku from the work is placed beside it. The multi-coloured splotches of paint that cover the work generate a sense of vibrancy and edginess, that adds variation and rhythm to the piece. The placement of luxury icons such as Rolls Royce and Lamborghini with emblems of childhood like manga characters and Chupa Chups lollipops creates a synthesised vision of nostalgia, childhood and luxury. This concept, like much of Auguste’s oeuvre, is open to interpretation, leaving the viewer with further thoughts to ponder.



About the artist

Born in 1977, French artist Auguste hails from the famed Bordeaux region of France. Though he studied disciplines other than fine arts, Auguste always felt compelled and drawn to the art world. Ultimately he followed his passion for the visual arts, finding his unique artistic vision and voice and is now known for his colorful contemporary Pop Art-inspired and nostalgia-evoking works.
Auguste terms his oeuvre “Generations” as his works revolve around a central theme of pop culture icons from the past. Conjuring memories of previous eras, his pieces depict celebrities, super heroes and other iconic figures, in conjunction with American and French marks to provide the viewer with a reminiscent glimpse of past epochs.
