| DUFILHO |
As an architect, the « Futurism » passionated Antoine Dufilho, nephew of the actor, Jacques Dufilho. Antoine Dufilho became a sculptor, esthete and the greatest fan of Bugatti. Since his childhood, he has been surrounded by the family’s passion about sportive cars and its’ mechanical beauty.
Self-taught man, he has decided to work on the purification of various legendary and exclusive car models. He worked in order to decline each car in “series” of different interpretations. Dufilho made these car models of aluminum plates, hammered. They are soldered together, dressed in custom paint. The expression of speed itself, with oval-shaped wheels remind us the effect produced by an old-time photographic shutter.
Such representation aims to make lighter the models and keep an authentic morphology of the automobile, it gives also a complex vision of new multiple curves. This way of representation reminds the mechanical art of an engine or car’s front grille, and offers to spectator a special perception of the model from different viewpoint. He seeks to integrate in his artworks all aspects of modernity, and especially by choosing materials. Since 2013, he exhibits exclusively in Paris at galleries Mickael Marciano.
