Philippe Caspar Born in Strasbourg in 1982, graphic designer; self-taught artist, mostly influenced by cinema, literature, music and comics. Practicing drawing since childhood with models such as Bernie Wrightson, Marcel Gotlib, Claude Serre, Bill Watterson and Robert Crumb.
Attracted by abstraction, “I work my colors in order to find the brute force, almost independently of the drawing used as a basis for the canvas, without ever losing sight of it.”
Influences: Jean Léon Gérome, William Bouguereau and Hippolyte Flandrin, Klimt, Hopper, Pollock and Basquiat.
