The worlds of music, comic strips, and graphic art come together in Brice Poircuitte’s bold, provocative paintings. “It is important to me that each painting exudes emotion,” he says, and in his work strong, vibrant colors and unexpected, surreal arrangements of people and objects combine to create a psychedelic world that delivers a powerful emotional punch. In many of Poircuitte’s acrylic paintings (which often incorporate ballpoint pens and other media) intense colors emerge from black backgrounds, giving them a brooding darkness that channels and focuses their energy. Cartoonish figures are contained in an atmosphere that turns their whimsical nature into something far more intense and challenging.
The artist has designed album covers and visuals for performers, including the legendary alternative rock band Fishbone. Despite his success in this area, the artist feels that the larger format he now works in allows him to give the emotional content of his images a freer and fuller expression. Just like the music that inspires it, Poircuitte’s work crosses boundaries and defies traditional genres, taking many influences and reassembling them into a dynamic new vision.
