Franck Omer

xFranck Omer, born 1974 in Seyne-sur-Mer, France. Lives and works in Marseille, France.

“Franck Omer’s work should not be seen as one of an artist with a prolific imagination, but as one of a mythological ferryman of symbols, a dreamer awake whose primitive fantasies make of him the spiritual grandson of Bosch, Grünwald or Bruegel. His visual universes is however not limited to those of the mystical Flemish painters.

A virtuoso who masters the scales of World cultures symbols, Omer infringes the authority of traditions with humour and poetry, manipulating them and projecting us in the heart of a singular world, where the shadows of primitive forests infiltrate the brick walls of the city.”
