Shaka has a long track record. His graffiti background includes starting the Paris crew DKP in the early 90s, Shaka’s equally accomplished in fine art and his art today represents his breadth; it just so happens you might see it on a wall or a canvas. Shaka is one of a key class of modern French street artists who’s taken influence from the likes of Caravaggio, Lucian Freud or Francis Bacon.
Shaka directed his work towards a painting that blends sculpted expression and movement, incorporating a unique 3D, where the realism is just a pretext to reveal a latent abstraction.
Shaka breaks the canvas, he gives us an art which wants a painting of human excesses and the absurdity of some of our behaviors. At Shaka, the masks fall, transcribing the true nature of man, through caricatural.
