Recently the subject of a torrent of media attention, iCanvas are proud to present these canvas prints of another of Sebastien Del Grosso's breathtaking photo series. The Parisian artist's works exist at the space halfway between urban photography and the selfie, and seem to stretch the very boundaries of the lived environment. It is hard to believe that this young artist who cuts such a seductive swathe through the mediums of drawing and photography bought his first camera just three years ago. Del Grosso's works are organic, living processes that seem to unfold in the same mysterious way as the artistic process itself. Indeed, in many of these fascinating and sweeping images the artist's creations have taken on a life of their own more profound and limitless than the reality that they were once served to depict.
The lines of realism and fantasy are blurred beyond all recognition in the works of this unique artist. Since Del Grosso's childhood, drawing was always a passion, but it wasn't until his mastery of photography that the artist found the perfect outlet for his talent. In an urge to illustrate his life, Del Grosso came up with the idiosyncratic idea of documenting the moment the rolling vista of a metropolitan or countryside scene finds its own summit of architectural and geometric perfection. Each of his works transmits the dynamism of the environment represented while multiplying the possibilities of their interpretation. Truly, his is an art of liberation and celebration, an organic process that unites the creative act with the process of artistic documentation.
