Pez is Nantes-based artist whose artwork has been greatly influenced by the graffiti and pop culture. Most famous for his recognizable graphite works on paper, his drawings often comment on everyday life, the economy, and icons of pop culture.
He recently introduced a small series of drawings on paper forming The Magic of Christmas mini series. Millennium Mercatorum is one of the rare colored pieces from the artist, showing the Holy Night in a different, more consumerism focused environment. Money Christmas depicts an iconic snow ball with little bank notes falling around instead of snow flakes, similar to Buy The Way in which people are wearing smiling masks while going through the holiday shopping madness. Focused on the festive season, but seen with an artist’s critical eyes, these witty works reference the materialistic side of the holidays, its environmental issues, or parody the iconic images of Christmas.
