Lhouette, aka British artist Ciarán Robinson, is one of the UK’s most progressive proponents of urban pop. His ‘post urban glamour' and 'pop maximalist' concepts have won him international recognition, along with the widely collected silhouette figures which inspired his pseudonym. Lhouette employs mediums ranging from aerosol paints to high pigment heavy body acrylics, resins, diamond dust and metallic gilds and works with stencils, collage and hand painting to create his vibrant compositions. He incorporate vintage design, iconic figures, comic book characters, fashion, music and more, and his personal nostalgia for the ’80s and ’90s heightens the retro aesthetic, but in an entertaining visual twist he overlays this with digitised symbols from social media platforms and mainstream software to capture the zeitgeist. Lhouette’s His work is sold internationally as well as through Christies, Sotheby’s and Bonhams, and his impressive list of private and corporate collectors includes Antonio Banderas, Tim Burton, Ronan & Storm Keating, Adrian Newey and the Dorchester.
