After a very successful show last year, Franck Ecalard is back in Amsterdam for his second solo exhibit at the GO Gallery, with a series of stunning canvasses featuring his work, which we like to call “Urban-Pop Art”.
His artworks portray the optimistic side of life and hence the title, “THE OPTIMIST”.

The show opens on Saturday the 13th of Sep., 2014 on the Prinsengracht 64, at 5.00 pm.
The artworks will be on display until the end of November at GO Gallery.

Franck Franck used to be a celebrated architect in Paris earlier, but now chooses to focus his architectural talent mainly on acrylics on canvas. The topics for his artworks vary from classic cars and icons to comic characters and known brands and the animal kingdom.Ecalard’s artworks will also be represented by the GO Gallery at the Blooom Art Fair in Cologne, from 23rd – 27th of October 2014.

Franck Ecalard, The Optimist exposeert vanaf 13 september in GO Gallery. Na een succesvolle carrière als architect, is de Franse kunstenaar ruim 10 jaar geleden gaan schilderen. Zijn grote doeken, in heldere kleuren geschilderd, stralen humor uit, waarin stripfiguren, gebouwen, auto’s en de wereld de hoofdrollen spelen. 

Hij schildert optimistische thema’s. Ecalard schuwt niet om bestaande iconen uit de strip- en popart wereld te portretteren. Zijn stijl is levendig, het lijkt of de personages door het doek lopen, de auto’s écht rijden en de wereld om z’n as draait. Het werk van Franck Ecalard is ook te zien zijn in de stand van GO Gallery, op de Blooom Art Fair in Keulen, van 24 t/m 27 oktober.
