Édouard Nardon

New Compositions and Whole New Meanings in Nardon's Sculptures & Paintings

Currently working on large paintings and abstract sculptures involving tarot reading and parachutes, artist Édouard Nardon explores various elements, mediums and materials (industrial latex, acrylic, plastic combs, steel, glass, toothbrushes, razor blades) to create his own identity. Originally from Paris, France, the versatile artist now lives and works in New York City, citing Raoul’s as his favourite restaurant and explaining that his go-to bar changes every 3 months. Expressing his love and dislike of the ‘extremeness of everything’, he’s definitely a New Yorker now.
