The Artiste

An artist at the legendary modesty, creativity, and inventiveness without limits..
Gerald Pestmal PortraitNature is for him the greatest source of inspiration nourishing his imagination without limits.
Arguably it reigns supreme in his work by guiding him in his dreams.

"This, in our so-called advanced societies, is considered " waste ", is doomed to disappear from the sight of men. It is thrown in landfills ton
- I think of packaging products, paper, cardboard, crates ... However, this waste represents human "industry", in the oldest sense. They reflect the intelligence, expertise, ingenuity of men who compete to matter and transform. They are "artwork".
Random encounters and bike strolls in the city, I gleaned these boxes, these papers overflowing urban garbage bins or professionals.
Treasures, increasingly varied and sophisticated, I tear their waste fate.
With the recycling of these materials and the work I carried them in my turn, I am part of this industrious filiation.
I restore to waste their precious and identity of processed material.
I in my turn transforms into a sustainable work and conducive to contemplation of men. "
It uses a lot of paper and recycled cardboard, but also the wooden crates, to bring them towards sustainability in their confer the status of work of art.
He creates true low reliefs, whose strange and abstract swirls reproduce the endless cycle of life, elements and landscapes.
