  • About the Artist

Born in 1983 Damien Mauro aka Goddog, is an urban and graphic artist from Châlons en Champagne. From an Italian family, Damien learns at a very young age to juggle his two cultures: that of his origins and that of his native country. He will always keep his spirit of observation and his sensitivity to others, which will be the driving forces in his creative work. Self-taught, his passions for architecture, literature and sharing will feed his art and his approach. 

His work develops around the notion of link and fracture, which are issues inherent to urban art. Indeed, urban art creates a direct link with its public: it is offered without filter in the street, for all to see. The frescoes painted by Goddog thus aim to decompartmentalise the notion of art and overcome social divides in order to reach those for whom art is not very accessible.

The notion of exchange and dialogue are clearly apparent in some of his works, which evoke pictograms. This plastic work on the letter is in line with the heritage of artists from the graffiti scene or Brazilian pixaçaos. In Goddog's work, the letter loses all its meaning and becomes symbolic in an attempt to approach a universal language

The link and the fracture are also present in his works on canvas: his continuous lines bring unity while cutting the surface. In this way, various figurative elements emerge in the abstract work: symbols, faces, landscapes. His particular constructions, which are played out on several levels, plunge us into a poetic and dreamlike world which - fuelled by a palette of pastel tones - exudes a harmony imbued with softness. The artist's intention is to lead us to a calming of the spirit and to interaction with others. Her works are an invitation to escape and travel in her singular universe which nevertheless echoes in each of us.
