Hugo Baudouin

Exploring the Depths of Societal Appearances through Colorful Expressions

About the artist: 

Hugo Baudouin is a visual artist born in Montpellier, south of France, and established in Berlin (DE).

Having his background drowned in skate-boarding and street culture, it is through the study of the applied arts and space design that he signed his name to the art of painting.

His work refers to figure; to each one’s hidden face.

The figure here is social iconography, sexual symbol, aesthetic fantasy.

By portraying one’s psychotic and influenced inner self with a style recognized by a strong expressiveness on the line, his faces, grimaces and characters, whether they are alone or in the middle of a crowd, are here to confront the viewer and to incite each of us to face our own individuality, to challenge and unveil the societal appearances.

Who am I behind the mask? Who am I in the crowd? With this great theatre of the persona and its multiple identities, Hugo Baudouin explores the society and collective’s domination processes on one’s self, and how to detach oneself from this hold.
