Interview: Charlie Wayne
Luca Curci talks with the artist Charlie Wayne during FUTURE LANDSCAPES of BORDERS festival in Venice on October 2016.
Charlie Wayne is an outsider artist born in France where he currently lives. Monaco and London contemporary art prize nominee, his work question the identity, the fame and the place of reality in a world where image and marketing are kings, even after death. Often made with double reading, his work is inspired by pop culture and seduces with its « dark new wave » aesthetics. In his mind, Charles Manson, murderous star-made icon appears composed with the faces of its victims often relegated to the media plan, while the mythical and erotic Marilyn permeates from little Norma Jeanne faces, careless, before she was bruised by fame and the highest levels of political influence.
