ILLUSTRATIONS AND PICTURES BY FELIX LARHER – BY ALICE DEVELEY

Dear Diane and Shaded Viewers,

Last thursday night was busy in the galleries of Paris. If there is usually plenty of people in the streets of the capital, I can assure you that yesterday was absolutely full. Every art lovers and aesthetes had gathered in the Archives street, close to the City Hall, so as to admire, over refreshing drinks, the work of art of Felix Lahrer. An art which exudes fragrances of humour and subtlety.

« Felix Lahrer has mixed digital and photographic arts to create something both vivid and alive ».

In an illuminated galery, spangled with bonsai trees, floating plants and sculptures of creators, Felix Lahrer was here, shining on three large white walls. His photographies of nude bodies and tops literally moving before my eyes, as in a comic book… I was completely absorbed in his pop art world, full of flash colours and dots, recapturing with felicity the stereotypes of our consumer society where Kate Moss rub shoulders with the Simpsons. Without a doubt, he is the worthy heir of Andy Warhol. A true moment of joy and inspiration.
