Philip Bodelock

Philip was born in 1974 in France. He does graphics and street art, works in many countries in Europe. To quote the artist himself: "I work wherever I am welcome."

Color is intentionally avoided in this piece yielding to an elegance of lines and planes. The piece's central character is an animal, which is a symbol of unique natural plasticity.

Philip creates large-scale crayon and oil pastel illustrations on walls covered with black matte paint. The author’s style is strict lines combined with many images inside the image.

“It was really a matter of price: with a pack of 10 or 12 crayons, I could draw on such a large wall. The idea was so simple, pragmatic,”

The artist made his first chalk drawing on a black wall in a street in 2009. Photos of the animal shape with cosmic patterns inside went viral across the Internet. This technique has become Philip’s unique style. Nature interests him in a broader context. It is the universe, outer space and everything that arises from this interaction.
