French artist Alban creates unique paintings related to wartime nose art. Drawing inspiration from aircraft wrecks and industrial machinery, Alban creates an illusion of heavy metal objects through paint on wood. He draws his inspiration from aircraft wrecks and industrial machinery, but his scale is distorted, colours are magnified and the subject itself is often invented. His Contemporary Pop-Art style focuses on bold expression with color and scale. After spending most of his childhood in Africa, Alban returned to his birth country of France to receive a BA in Advertising and Graphic Design and a MA in Animated Movies from Ecole des Gobelins art school in Paris. After working as a set designer in cinema for 12 years, Alban started his career as a full-time artist. Since then, his art has been exhibited in art galleries around the world, from Paris and New York to London and Hong Kong.
