Breaking the mould can be hard to achieve within the perimeters of just four two dimensional sides. A canvas can contain an artist’s ideas, a little too neatly, a little too precisely. Rejecting the typical tools of the artist’s trade, raw woods, oil drums and torn papers have proved to be rich materials for Lhouette, whose resourcefulness has won critical and commercial acclaim.
Born from his very first original works on reclaimed pallets, and lending themselves to his artistic name, Lhouette has created a distinct cast of seductive female characters. Named Angel Cake, Little Miss Sunshine and Last Orders, each sweet candy coloured woman is armed with weapons ready to unleash cultural chaos. Outlined in stencil and aerosol, the ladies first found form overlaid on fluorescent stripes punctuated by global brands.
