Oliver Kosta-Théfaine paints with fire
Oliver Kosta-Théfaine, a French artist who is constantly playing with fire, literally. He uses a lighter in the most unique way, to burn designs into ceilings. It might be just another way of expressing your self but it is surely one of the most unique. Born in 1972, Olivier Kosta-Théfainelives and works in Paris, France.In each of his interventions, Olivier Kosta-Théfaine plays with the codes and clichés of popular culture. He uses the languages and codes of the city and its suburbs, changing or modifying their original meaning so it can be understood by a broader public. His reflection is essentially based in rehabilitating the, often deconsidered, elements that belong to the city. His fascination for the suburbs has switched to a passion that is essential to his everyday work. The city is his muse, the drive for his artistic inspiration. Not surprising, the last time I was in Paris I started contemplating on creating a blog about artistic things.
