La Rouille (b.1981) is an French artist born in Chambéry.
Self-taught, La rouille discovered painting late at urban explorations. Attracted by the unique atmospheres emerging from these urban spaces abandoned by man, his approach is focused on damage linked to history and time, as well as physical and memorial.
His silhouettes bring to life for a brief moment, to these forgotten places. Often resonate with his own ghosts and those who haunt these various locations.
Always in order to transcribe at best temporal alteration and melancholy spirit which are evidence these "ruins" of man, "the rust" strives to use materials collected on site during his explorations and recreating these natural wear phenomena.
