Artist of the Day: Horfée

Horfée

Horfée is a Parisian artist whose work is sprayed onto walls, drawn onto paper and tattooed into flesh. His work was featured earlier this year in a gallery show called “Imaginarium” that took place in London.

Here is an animated video made by Horfée and Jonathan Djob Nkondo (previous Artist of the Day himself) for the Imaginarium Exhibition:

This unused swimming pool was improved with artwork by Horfée and Ken Sortais:

Horfée’s work is unified by the cartoon material that his characters and forms appear to be constructed with. His use of flabby tires, sagging sacks and folded tubes with deep black shadows reveal an array of classic cartoon influences. Horfée clues us in by mixing posts of artwork that he likes with his own work on his Tumblr. These posts include images from the Fleischer Studios, Bakshi Studios, and Vaughn Bodé.

    And another influence, the “Death is home” pic seems to be inspired by Paul Kirchner’s “Dope Rider”.
