Shock Waves: Powerful Urban Paintings by Shaka

Published Oct 1, 2015

French artist Marchal Mithouard, aka Shaka, explores the urban individual in his layered geometric artworks.

“Shaka’s Onde de Choc series shows varied moments of people in action, immersed in the impact of internal and external motion. The geometric faces possess a dark humanity, initiated by the shock of movement. Heads turning, reeling, and shaking come to life through sweeping lines and extended silhouettes. In Shaka’s signature bas-relief style, portions of the portraits extend outside of the canvas, furthering their dynamic energy.”

His second solo exhibition in the US, “Onde de Choc”, is currently on show at Gallery Nine 5 in New York.
