Gildas Coudrais

Gildas Coudrais was born 1975 in Cholet, France. He makes paintings, drawings, installations and mixed media artworks.

With his gleam and sparkle signal colours, he gets very close to the aesthetics of pop-culture. The painting on glass – highly brilliant and intensely compressed – partially loses its materialistic character and approaches to the modern media of our time.

He experiments with a wide-ranged repertoire of history of art which he combines, literally, with quotations from media, advertising and poetry.

Taken out of context the parts lose their original meaning and values and the art becomes a multi-layered piece on its own: mysterious, fantastic, and poetic. With his cheerful, partly ironic honesty, the artist puts the fragments and symbols in a new geographic, moral and intellectual context.

What is standard, what is kitsch – what is “bon gout”? His works question the coerciveness that is derived from the more profound meaning and the superficial aesthetic appearance of our society.

Gildas Coudrais currently lives and works in Germany.

In Berlin Gildas Coudrais is represented by the gallery 68 projects.
