Although he doesn't want to belong to any particular movement, David Cintract follows in the footsteps of the pop-art artists of the '60s. He's taken something of Andy Warhol, something of the images and language of comics, to frame his work. He wants to prove that comics can adorn our walls, just as well as any other form of pictorial art. As a child, he was already creating his own characters, and when his dream finally came true, he gave up everything for painting, with great success. His style is a personalization of American pop art, in terms of graphics, colors, effects and themes, and in a playful, humorous way, he puts into vivid images the current events that upset him, paying homage to the American cinema of the 50s and 60s, and to its leading stars.Combining photographic images reprocessed in fluorescent colors and laid down in precisely drawn flat tints, with expressions taken directly from comics, he composes images that are strange, disturbing, but entertaining in spite of everything.David Cintract introduces onomatopoeia and words with a graphic style similar to that of tags or graffiti, another borrowing from America. His canvases are undoubtedly an acerbic parody of the consumer society in which we live, and to which there is no evidence that he really adheres.When they don't resemble the faces of today's comics, the faces that eat up almost all his canvases are borrowed from fashion or advertising figures: hijacked, distorted, mixed with modern symbols of freedom, comfort, wealth...brutal images of the ambient superficiality of our world. Like Andy Warhol, the colors are aggressive, acidulous, with no connection to the reality of things.David Cintract finds it hard to accept that the well-being and material ease we enjoy in our Western societies can overshadow the real problems from which our planet suffers. Fragmented, disjointed images, but images of protest, in which many people find themselves, which explains the artist's dazzling success. Barely finished, his canvases find buyers, which is a good sign for an artist: a painter of a certain derision, of a grating humor, he has found a style that gives him the means to denounce what shocks him, without pontificating, in a language directly accessible to the greatest number. Bravo!
