We have been featuring the brilliant French artist Greg Leon Guillemin for years. You can see our previous posts here and here. We loved his work to the core his designs are brilliant — but what is really awesome about this ongoing project of his is the creative imagination behind it. Every character and his everyday life chores are carefully thought and beautifully executed.
After two years working on the “Secret Life Of Heroes” and “Pop Icons” series, Léon makes a dent in the underground Art world by presenting the best of his work into a much-awaited Art Book entitled: “For Your Eyes Only” featuring first numbers of these sculptures.
47-year-old Grégoire Guillemin, aka “Léon”, refuses to let his childhood passions fade into the past. Science fiction, comic books, and video games still reign. From 1930’s vintage to modern day Pop Art, his work rediscovers and reinvents styles through experimentation with variegated, minimalistic techniques. As a leading actor in the “Geek Art” movement, Léon doesn’t see himself as an artist, but rather as an “Eclectic Graphical Gamer.”
While each one of his projects attained international fame, a few of his best known include “Exercises of Style” and “Famous Capsules”. Also among the most popular, Grégoire’s collections “Secret Life Of Heroes” & “Pop Icons” display a humorous inside peek at the hidden, yet colorful and slightly steamy life of our most beloved heroes.
You can see his Kickstarter project and back it up here and there are many levels of rewards available for the level of pledge you will make. Do pledge on it, I love to have his art pieces and his book added to my collection of pop art. Additionally you can check his website for more brilliant art pieces.
