THE OPTIMIST by FRANCK ECALARD, May 6th – June 18th.

Franck Ecalard (1967), a Paris based urban artist, is back in Amsterdam with his 3rd solo show at the GO Gallery. For as long as he can recall, Franck was drawing and sketching things. He finally obtained his degree in architecture at DPLG( Academy for Architecture) in 1994. After a short stint in the world of architecture, and not convinced by his profession, his adventure as an artist began. And he has never looked back since. His paintings come from the sunny south of France. Well, actually anywhere the sun shines. His artworks are bright and colorful and full of optimism. Hence the title….. THE OPTIMIST-Editon III. This is Franck Ecalard’s third solo exhibition at GO Gallery. The exhibition will be on display until the 18th of June.

Na een succesvolle carrière als architect, is de Franse kunstenaar Franck Ecalard (1967) 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. Dit is Franck’s derde solo expositie in GO Gallery. De expositie is te zien tot 18 juni.
