The singularity of Gérard Bakner's work stems from his journey and his path. Magician recognized in France, G. Bakner decided in 2012 to transpose the magic show by creating paintings with unexpected, even inexplicable effects. By adapting mathematical formulas, optical illusions and magical effects to his creations, he brings a unique and original dimension to the landscape of today's contemporary art. In 2015, during the exhibition Black is Back, his work received the congratulations of ORLAN as well as the attentive gaze of Christine Macel (chief curator of the Centre Pompidou) among other representatives of major French institutions. Very recently, Yoyo Maeght also saluted the originality of his work.Read More
