He cuts, paints and screws thousands of wood sticks on Forex, in order to compose 3D paintings, as if a million pixels where bumping out of the canvas. Each artwork contains between 3000 and 7000 wood sticks, which have been painted one by one before.

Between Delacroix or Haribo, he plans to make a big walls of 16 IPad applications...

The idea is to challenge the "zappers" society and focus on certain images; the viewer is encouraged to spend some time turning around, moving back and forth in order to embrace the whole image.

The result is an amazing mix of architecture, pop art and illusion.

He will held his first personal show in October 2012 in Galerie Lazarew, Paris.

Implications - After he created a portrait of Chinese artist Ai Weiwei, Samuel got very much interested in creating 3D portraits "the old way" : spending time and having a real relashionship with the client. Who’s next? Stats for 3D pixellised works of art Trending: Older & Chilly
