About the artwork

Ku - In this work by Auguste, the silhouette of Bansky’s infamous Balloon Girl is seen against a background featuring images of pop culture symbols and figures, such as James Bond, Pink Panther and the Hermes logo, while a cutout of her balloon is positioned next to the work. By positioning these images in association with each other, Auguste invariably links art, luxury consumer goods and the media together, thus making a statement about the state of society and our consumption in this day and age. Auguste’s unique artistic vision and voice has garnered widespread appreciation for his colorful contemporary works, and he has participated in exhibitions throughout the US, Europe and Asia.



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.
