Artwork by 100TAUR created for the opening of his show "Monsters in my Closet" @ Artoyz Shop + Galerie. October 2014.

Giclee print on Epson 180g Enhanced Matte Paper limited to 20 pieces.

Between innocence and darkness, 100Taur explores the allure of difference and imperfection, by creating a world inhabited by fantastical creatures, half human-half animal hybrids, deformed, tarnished, where every detail is a tribute to the etching’s caption « the sleep of the reason produces monsters », made by the spanish painter Francisco de Goya in 1799.

His work might be affiliated to « Low Brow », and there’s in it an assumed fascination for mythologies and monsters, even a claimed sympathy. Its aim is to dispute the idea of standardization, and to reveal that any standard is monstrous itself.

« Through my childish eyes, I invent nightmare creatures in order to make them my imaginary confidents. I love to pay a particular attention to the tiny details of the backgrounds, offering to my creatures a rich and colorful universe, inspired by mythological descriptions in literature, japanese icons...We must not forget that «monstrum», means, in Latin, a miracle, an incredible thing, also a show. Wonderful, horrible or disgusting. It’s what it’s necessary to see and to show ».

Behind every drawing, painting, sculpture or installation, a story is waiting to be discovered.

He uses acrylic paint, ink, walnut stain, spray painting, egg tempera technique, in superimposed layers.

He tirelessly works for the creation of a dark enchanted world.

100Taur was born in 1982 in the south of France. He has always cultivated a deep curiosity for nature and he finds his inspiration in «classical » paintings -Jerome Bosch, Bruegel...-, surrealistic pop and Low Brow, mythology, religious icons, taxidermy, fantasy literature – Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe –, comics and B movies. His eyes are wide open all the time.
