Lives and works in Paris.
By introducing humor through the canvas itself, Nicolas Chardon bring real life into abstract suprematist patterns.
Instead of using traditional support in linen, he uses ready made fabrics, originally well squared with straight grid patterns, which, while stapled to their stetchers, deform the lines. Then the supposed supermatist square forms are painted, follwing the graphic accidents created by this deformation process…
