LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
Bruno Gouagout, artist Morpho, is a multi-disciplinary artist. Born in 1985 in France, he developed a strong taste for artistic creation from an early age. Suffering from a genetic disease, art in all its forms allowed him to escape during his long stays in hospital.
It is after having completed his Bachelor of Plastic Arts at the University of Corte in Corsica (including a year of Graphic Design in Athens) that he established himself in Guyana as a Professor of Applied Arts, in 2009. He created and built his house in the heart of the Amazon, integrating architecture, sculpture, painting, design, traditional and modern materials.
Since 2015, he has perfected his mastery of digital tools and is dedicated to the creation of anamorphic sculptures, that is to say sculptures offering different faces depending on the angle of view. These objects are illuminated at precise angles in order to cast their shadows on panels or painted canvases. Navigating between crafts, decorative arts and plastic arts, his work is transversal and versatile. He plays with know-how and eras, mixing centuries-old techniques such as leaf gilding and advanced technologies such as 3D printing. Constantly experimenting, each of his works is unique and the opportunity to perfect new know-how.
intention, with these works, is to foster multiple visions, to keep in
mind that things can only be apprehended after having observed them in
all their aspects. Bring the viewer back and forth between what they perceive and what they understand, between the overall vision and the details. Much
like the cubists who decomposed the objects, he tries to decompose the
ideas, to promote understanding and raise new questions. It
questions general notions such as art, spirituality, territory,
tradition and modernity, etc., through universal messages that can also
surprise or disturb.
