FROM FRANCE W/ LOVE – MEET STREET ARTIST: PADAME ONE

When you think of street art, the words “glitch” and “photography” aren’t the first things that come to mind. For French Artist, Padame One they are the focal point of his work. Located in the city of Rouen France (north of Paris) Padame’s artwork is consider by locals to be “the most attractive street art in the area.” His love for photography began in 2012, when a close friend of his purchased a camera. “I experimented with different software until one day a glitch appeared on the layer I was working on. It reminded me of paint dripping on a canvas. So I pushed the style further.”

 

 

Although Glitch Art has become popular over the past few years, it’s rarely seen in the form of street art. Especially in the drip/waterfall style that Padame has worked hard to create as his signature look. He takes extra time to carefully select an image that would make for a perfect distortion. After doing so, he prints the creation and brings it to the streets, where wheat paste is applied to the side of a selected building, making the image difficult to remove. 

 

 

Padame’s current goal is to distort photography of his own, rather than working with pre-existing photos. While he favors portraits, that doesn’t stop him from finding beauty in
distorting landscape imagery. 

Padame’s Glitch Street Art made it’s debut early 2017 and has continuously been talked about among Rouen locals. Currently, Padame is discovering new possibilities for his artwork & hopes to visit the U.S.
within the next year or two. We’ll be sure to keep you posted on that…
