Artist of the moment……..Claude Gilli

 

Claude Gilli is a wonderful artist from France renowned for using snails as his painting assistants. Gilli works a painter, printmaker, collage artist,  and sculptor using wood as his medium of choice.

Gilli is associated with the Pop Art movement. With his prints he depicted some well known vacation areas of France including locations on the French Riviera.

 

In this clip we check out Gilli working with his beloved snails!:

In this clip we check out some of the artist’s lithography prints:

Price range information: Sorry none available.

I love the Pop Art style and the use of color by Gilli. His work, especially with the female figure, reminds of American artist Tom Wesselmann.
