ANTOINE DUFILHO

Antoine Dufilho is an Architect, passionate by « Futurism ». Since his early childhood, he has been surrounded by the family’s passion about sportive cars and its’ mechanical beauty. He is very early immersed by his father and uncle (Jacques Dufilho) in the word of rallies and car shows. By the way, it was on his father’s birthday that he build his first model : a reissue of the Bugatti Grand Prix. Self-taught artist, he has decided to work on the purification of various legendary and exclusive car models. This allows him to decline each car in “series” of different interpretations. Indeed, these car models, made of aluminum plates, hammered and soldered together, dressed in custom paint, are expression of speed itself, with oval-shaped wheels, reminding us the effect produced by an old-time photographic shutter (of former days).

Such representation aims to make lighter the models and keep an authentic morphology of the automobile. It gives also a complex vision of new multiple curves. This way of representation reminds the mechanical art of an engine or car’s front grille, and offers to spectator a special perception of the model from different viewpoint. Antoine Dufilho seeks to integrate in his artworks all aspects of modernity. This especially includes the choice of materials.

Find his works in Marciano Contemporary galleries.
