Yannick Hamon, born and raised in Toulouse, France. From a young age Hamon had a keen sense of creativity that was against the norm of the typical paint and canvas. Yannick began experimenting with different forms of media, utilizing photography, typography, graphic design, acrylic paint, graffiti style spray paint, creating textures from hardware utensils, recycled items, calligraphy, and resins. Hamon’s education in multi media art at the Scriptorium de Toulouse, a school that specializes in typography and calligraphy helped him reach a greater success with his individualized style of art expression. Yannick’s paintings have been exhibited and sold in galleries throughout Europe and the United States. His desire to create for “ALL” without prejudice has helped him grow his business within fashion and customization work for skateboards, interior design, furniture and snowboards.
“What is inspiring and allows me to create pieces is the basic human emotion of everything we see around us daily, striking images of photography, how music can bring people to extreme levels of joy and tears. I am not political in my art expression at all. Instead I prefer to exhibit what is beautiful around us using vibrant, erotic and feminine imagery. It is natural for me to be motivated by the beauty of women. How they paint and dress themselves to be admired by the public. Being respected and recognized on a very human, creative level is what motivates each painting.”
