VIKY "Women of Steel"
VYKI, whose real name is Maxime VIRICEL, creates figurative and contemporary sculptures by mastering the roundness of forms and by associating steel with the human body. His work aims to provoke reaction, reflection and acceptance at first sight. Thanks to an overflowing and spontaneous imagination, he creates light and complex works, aesthetic and especially unique! Steel, cold and industrial materials appear by definition under a light and warm angle thanks to the use of welded nuts. This technique of composition gives a lace effect, we find the hard and solid side of the metal associated with the flexibility and the softness of the fabric. VYKI's work can be discovered in two stages, the first being the observation of the sculpture and its general forms and the second being the discovery of the composition and the meticulous work done on each piece. At the crossroads between contemporary art, quasi futuristic or even robotic creation and the realism of the human body, VYKI creates works that resemble us and that integrate the spirit of the times.
