History of the work :
Igor, the approach of the street art style.
Igor, the meeting of contrasting opposites.
With a panel of 150 x 150 cm, the temptation to try spray painting was irresistibly strong.
The expression of this very black and pink primate certainly suggests an unprecedented aggressiveness, but a bit like KING KONG this giant gorilla famous for its strength and mystery also exudes a big heart.
Igor is directly inspired by the latter, with the added bonus of a hyper-flashy dye that is recognisable among all the other
alphas. This breaks the myth of the brute and the villain and shows two contrasting sides of the animal: strength and sensitivity.
