|Raphael Labro Biography|
|Labro - Bio|
At the young age of 16, he is admitted at the Fine Art School of Nice and have his first solo exhibition "Photographisme" in 1973 with artworks created on photographic paper.
Attracted subsequently by photography, he establishes his name working for designers such as Yamamoto Kansai, Kenzo, Jean-Paul Gaultier and many big names while taking pictures for all major fashion magazines by ways of Paris, London, Hamburg, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Hong-Kong and Sydney.
Pushing technological limits using custom lenses with prisms and mirrors or ignoring "good practice" photography by taking pictures under extreme conditions like the full moon light he is the "enfant terrible" of photography but obtains corporate backings being one of the few photographers sponsored by AGFA Gevaert and Apple Inc.
He embraces the digital revolution in the 90's which will transform photography in later years with a series of solo exhibitions "Ozone #9", "Visions Across the Universe" and "Transmutation" using photography and computer manipulation.
In his collection of paintings, Labro created his goddesses as strange creatures often depicted in a bulbous form with orange-brown hues and fluorescent green faces. The artist uses colours as symbols. The green colour on the face of the figures represents hope. The golden line behind the figures represents the sacred geometry.
Seemingly chaotic, his work is in reality a celebration of spiritual freedom. His paintings show a world in change, living, breathing and in constant motion.
Labro creates meaningful spontaneous expressions of the Universe.
Signaling change and awakening with his integration of ancient symbology paired with ultra modern hyper surrealism.
Labro's strong ability to communicate in the universal language of art is what earns him the right to be called the "Techno-poet / Cosmic-Rimbaud of the Visual Arts."
