With work spanning toys to television, multi-media French artist Sebastien Roux aka SuperDeux's kaleidoscopic expression makes its way to Kokoro Studio! SuperDeux creates works with unifying elements based on the simplicity of color and shape. Acting as catalyst, SuperDeux's subversive commercial aesthetic carries borderline political messages while bridging urban aesthetic and commercial mediums. SuperDeux has set out to infilt...rate an over saturated market with the force of childhood fascination.
Sebastien Roux began experimenting with Flash animation and graphic design in the late 90’s. His work culminated in the form of superdeux.com, though Roux’s initiative was not originally intended for commercial use. Superdeux’s early work caught the eye of Pictoplasma, an online design catalogue considered to be the preeminent point of supply for advertising executives. Having recently relocated to San Francisco, California, Roux takes his previous fascinations with Flash media to new levels as Creative Director of mochimedia.com.
Several Superdeux designs are available in the form of toys, prints and t-shirts at kidrobot and other stores worldwide
“More” opens Thursday, September 2, 2010 from 7-10 pm at Kokoro Studio. The opening coincides with the monthly First Thursday Art event in San Francisco. The exhibition is also available for viewing during regular gallery hours, Tuesday – Saturday 1pm-7pm.
