Artist Name

Ewen Gur

Born: 1984

Hometown: Tours

Based in: Berlin

Ewen Gur's style can be clearly categorized as comic drawing, but also as pop art. The message is quite clear: you should take life with a lot of humor and wit. Ewen Gur's subject matter focuses on the diversity of human, urban existence with strong references to music, which plays an important role in the artist's life. Consumption and excess are stylized into the absurd. The tragic is playfully conveyed through the comedic. Ewen Gur lives and works in Berlin. Born in France with German roots, he studied visual communication and graphic design in Chaumont and music history in Tours before settling in the German metropolis.

More About Ewen Gur

Question IconWhat inspires you?

I am inspired by the big city, the trends and absurdities that occur there. Watching people is always fun. In terms of artistic trends, clearly popular culture. I work almost every day in cafes for inspiration. I am also sensitive to good products, wines and cheeses for example, and to contemporary design.

Question IconDescribe your creative process.

I have different ways of working, because I like to renew myself regularly. There is nothing more boring than doing the same thing over and over again! At the moment I work on iPad for the sketches, crop / choose the close-up I want to keep and then move on to canvas. From there I move on to inks and acrylics. My process mixes physical painting and digital sketching.

Question IconWhat are 3 words that best describe your work?

uniqueness, fun and dedication

Question IconWho are some artists that have influenced your work?

Marcel gotlib, franquin, basquiat and keith haring

Question IconWhat is the most important tool when creating your work?

Good inks, good acrylic paint, small calligraphic brushes, my iPad, good music and a table.

Question IconWhat is the best piece of advice you have been given?

Do your own thing and don't care about the rest. Stay open, focused and keep learning.

Question IconWhere do you go for inspiration?

Changing environments and working outside in coffee shops (for the drawings) stimulates my creativity at its best.
