Ratur One – Various Paintings

Ratur One was born in Le Havre, France in 1983. Attracted by drawing and graphic arts, he heads in 2001 to a visual communication school, where he meets graffiti artist Madkow.

The figurative work of Ratur examines the relationship between graffiti and old masters. His European influences revolve around classic painting, graphic design and graffiti. His characters, who always seem to want to remain anonymous, are depicted in a very contemporary way. Despite his realistic approach, he does not seek to reproduce reality and plays with different graphic treatments on successive planes and the depth of field. The hand, omnipresent in his work, often provides context and tells us more about the character’s intentions.
