At a young age, Paris-based artist Alzon (born in 1980) discovered the works of American artists Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and Jeff Koons, who would become his artistic mentors. Entirely self-taught, he drew inspiration from their art while working to develop his own style, which might be classified as ‘contemporary dot art’.
Consisting of millions of tiny dots, Alzon’s works are representations of pop art in the original, onomatopoeic sense of the term. In updating this style for our times, the artist uses elements of the dot art technique pioneered by Indigenous Australians.
‘Recreating perfection through imperfection’ Alzon has been experimenting freely for more than five years with various forms of art – including photography, music and sculpture – with the ultimate goal of pursuing his passion for ‘recreating perfection through imperfection’. This creative quest has led to his current style of using vector circles – symbols of perfection which can be enlarged ad infinitum and which have become a signature of his work.
