KarLauArt – The French Touch

WHO & WHAT IS KARLAUART?

Karlauart is the name that Laurent & Karl, two French artists, chose to present their artwork. You can easily recognize their paintings thanks to their signature, the two letters: K L.

Both old French movies lovers, such as LA PISCINE (The swimming-pool, Directed by Jacques Deray, 1970)

with leads actors Alain Delon and Romy Schneider, and big fans of several actors of this era, such as Jean-Paul Belmondo, Jean Gabin, Lino Ventura, Fernandel, to name a few… they came up with the idea to create paintings by using panels of recycled wood, that they hunted for antiques.

The process is to ink the wood by means of projections and baths. It can take several months before being achieved.

Also, having a chance to meet a lot of celebrities as they organize events during the Cannes film festival & Deauville to name a few…  Both accomplices began by making a picture of Jean-Paul Belmondo’s portrait then the ideas followed and they were able to realize their first exhibition at the art gallery UNIKART in Beausoleil, where their paintings (boards) are present all year long.
