Specialized in the art of montage, David Ameil, born in 1979, gives life to colored, hedonist and out of sync universes. He gets his inspiration in rock music, the lifestyle and surf culture.
Then, come from his imagination prolific ideal towns, and surreal staging. Ocean lovers rub shoulders with sophisticated creatures, in an elegiac and carefree harmony.
Characters, architectures from different time periods, and very diverse universes, in a strange collision and portrayed in the same goal, go through our feelings and perceptions. Every single work from David Ameil is a small world, from which comes a joie de vivre. This west coast lover cultivates this theme with insolence, touching our dreams before surreptitiously reaching our anxiety.
Beyond lightness and carefree, emerged shamble, we perceive a beautiful disillusionment staged with humour. Obviously, the artist likes to confuse the issue, keeping up with absurdity and extravaganza, but providing details more or less occult.
Retro and futuristic, his most recent works speak for themselves : the artist brings us on a spatiotemporal flaw.
