MONKEY BIRD, PARIS, FRANCE
Louis Boidron and Édouard Egea, alias MonkeyBird. Their name is of high symbolic significance to the two artists in that, within their self-created mythology, the monkey stands for instinct and the bird for spirituality.
MonkeyBird’s imagery has a nostalgic air about it, featuring delicate black and white graphics reminiscent of old scientific drawings. The artists’ choices of background, i.e. old wooden doors and various other objects with antique patinas, are therefore particulary befitting. Time for observation – MonkeyBird are in their observatory pholosophizing about the incomprehensible nature of destiny. They gaze out into the endlessness, as the sand quietly falls through the hourglass.
