Original artwork description:

Édouard Louis is a French writer. The work of Édouard Louis maintains a fine link with sociology: the influence of Pierre Bourdieu pervades his novels, which invoke the themes of social exclusion, domination, and poverty.

Louis grew up in a poor family supported by government welfare: his father was a factory worker, his mother found occasional work bathing the elderly. The poverty, racism, alcoholism and his homosexuality which he dealt with in his family during his childhood would become the subject of his literary work.

My collage is about Louis struggle with being gay, in his newest novel he talks about the need to change, first not to appear gay, second to become famous and rich. I want to reveal, I want to state that Louis is okay as he is. And that nothing needs to be changed.

My collage is made of two different portraits that are glued upon each other, in the end I applied spray paint and epoxy resin for longevity.

IMPORTANT: None of my artwork is perfect, they are organic, there are drops of paint, tears in the paper, waves, glue residues. They are original!

Materials used:

Photo, Paper, Spray Paint, Epoxy resin
