“Born and raised in Paris, Eric is a true photography “graphiste”. Combining fantastic graffiti punk-rock-inspired fantasies on the most sensual canvases of all time, the nude, Eric’s photography is one not to miss. Eric is daring, consistent and committed to his work, whether it be his days a musician touring around the world, or his current focus within photography. KIS’s creative director met Eric by total coincidence over six years ago and has had the pleasure of following his journey ever since. Eric at first glance is strikingly easy going and relaxed. As you talk about the evening plans over a cocktail, he reveals that he was the lead singer of a well-known French punk rock band, Métal Urbain. You can still Google some clips from 1977- we assure you he can rock out that punk. Taking the lead not only on the singing but also the band’s artwork, Eric’s visual endeavors were well nurtured. In fact, his graphic work for Métal Urbain was even recognized on several occasions. Two record sleeves were reproduced in the book: Album Cover Art of Punk (Gingko Press). More recently, some of his record sleeves were exposed in the exhibition hall of “Des jeunes gens modernes” at the Galerie du Jour Agnes B in Paris and are part of a major exhibition entitled “EUROPUNK” first shown at Villa Medici, in Rome. But like any true artist like Madonna, Eric has re-emerged with a unique portfolio of photographic images highlighting his affinity for punk-rock music and his background in graphic word art, all of which have been displayed in places such as the Galerie Claude Petitjean, in Aix en Provence in France, the Museum of Porn in Art (MoPiA) in Zurich and recently in Paris’s La Preuve Par Neuf gallery. Well aware that his work is not neutral in any way, he is not bothered, nor are his collectors. It is not meant to be the pleasant, pretty nude that you would hang in your living room. His pictures make a statement- pop-like colorful, framed by an urban dimension, highlighted by an enchanting gorgeous undressed woman. His chosen canvases are very beautiful and mesmerizing, but none of them are what you expect from conventional runway girls. Eric seeks out alternative models. “I am not in search of perfection”, he says. “A girl has to be pretty and above all, there must be that something in her eyes, which is far more important than formal beauty. That is what ultimately matters in a nude.” That in combination with the fact that his works remain largely untouched, only managing a minor tweak or two aimed at managing exposure and contrast, his work remains largely authentic.” Keep-it-sexy.com - November 2011
