39 x 39 Acrylic painting, felt tip colored & pencil on stretched canvas
Born in France, Philippe Halaburda studied Graphic Design in Paris, graduating in 1996. For years, this contemporary artist has painted on a variety of supports, his personal style expressed through acrylic paints and other mediums. Halaburda’s brushstrokes are unexpected, strong, and playful, and in making them he relies on techniques of improvisation and free movement. Constantly in flux and evocatively free of allegory or narrative, they nevertheless seem to occupy the border between figuration and abstraction. Halaburda has created the expression of mental topography, a way to design new alphabet, to develop a full-fledged language with a unique writing, original and lively. Since many years, he has developed his own pictural and textual language, always in movement and evolving. It comes to interior and exterior, orientation, respective positions of the objects and human in space, of self and otherness.
