Lhouette’s unique style of art has made quite an impact among certain circles of the commercial art world, creating an ever growing army of enthusiasts and collectors including some of the UKs bright and beautiful celebrity figures. So what of Lhouette’s art, and how can it best be described to the uninitiated? His urban style lends itself as much to street art as it does to the world of pop art. Whilst not an obvious vehicle for controversy, his work does hint at and play on social unrest, often through the female form and often with a cheeky turn of wit. Stenciling techniques, visually arresting colourations, symbols, images and text all executed through a host of mixed mediums, instil a sense of urgency and a ‘call to arms’ mentality on those who pore over his work.
”My practice originates from more self-taught graphic design & stenciling techniques, originally I began creating art with old mechanic aerosol paints that were given to me, scrap sheets of salvaged wooden board and a moody scanner/printer… the work was beautifully raw! Things have developed somewhat since then and I’ve adopted a much more lavish refined approach to creating my work whilst trying to retain that certain rawness in essence”. Glamour and beauty is of great interest to me as an artist. I spend much time flicking through these kinds of magazines, sourcing imagery, creating juxtaposing collages that satisfy me visually, if I had to label my style would be called ‘POST URBAN GLAMOUR’
