Artist Exploration

"Transforming photography into painting.... That is the all purpose of CRAYONS, which name was taken from the "crayons colour pencils" we used as children in classrooms

I like colours and I see contrasts and bright textures everywhere, it is not only about concrete and polution, it is also about unity and consistency

Focusing on details and being able to enhance it makes it obvious, there's beauty in everything if we're willing to see it!

For this series we've work together with some Hong Kong Local master printer and we use a special printing technique that let the paper drink the ink, the photographs becomes then similar to water painting, and cities are transformed into forms of arts

About the Artist

Originally from Toulouse France and now living in Hong Kong, de Puymorin has always been deeply attracted by colours, shapes, and rich visuals that Asia has to offer the lens of his camera.

Working with little to no stylistic restrictions of any kind, de Puymorin’s work mirrors his own personality of experimentation and allowing his inspirations speak before all out.

Whether using classic photography or more advanced digital techniques, his works transmit an original yet artistic vision of life.

With his special fascination with geometric shapes, vibrant colours and sometime humorous scenarios, de Puymorin interacts with the subject by transforming reality into the abstract and unconventional shapes and compositions.

"I consider myself being modern yet poetic, funny yet sad, active yet passive....
Evolving in the one of the most contrasted environment plays a lot on one’s mood, hence the visual transcription of it remains even stronger more original and without boundaries...."

- Harold de Puymorin
