Every artwork of Gregoire Vorpe is a matter of the technique: ink pad, oil pencil, acrylic painting, plastic, Lego or labels collages. Displayed in the same room, his work may appear as a creation of different artists. In any case, all artworks have a common denominator: the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
The second aspect of Gregoire's creative process is the message. Each of his works refers more or less obviously to a drift of our society: mistakes of globalization, artificial intelligence, plastic pollution, interference of the brands, ecosystem degradation, etc. Without being an activist, Gregoire wishes his creations to raise questions and to open a debate.
When the technique and the subject are determined, the artist starts with the realization process. The making is precise and tedious. The result must reflect an investment of time and the passion behind it.
In the end, Gregoire Vorpe wants his work to create visual enthusiasm and emotions.
