Artist Showcase: Bruno Wagner

Born in Strasbourg in 1979, Bruno Wagner graduated in applied arts. Caught up by the new technologies and the internet craze, he turned toward multimedia. He became an experienced web designer and Flash animator and fulfills his position as an art director in an agency. But illustration remained his first calling. Very young, he was fascinated by artists like Boris Vallejo, Wojciech Siudmak, H.R. Giger and Brom, and his work continues to be inspired by his first loves. Strongly attached to traditional techniques, he works with oil or acrylic on canvas and sometimes revisits them in front of his screen. He also creates entirely digital pieces. Now he is resuming his work as an illustrator with a lot of fervor for book covers, publications, et cetera.

It’s a history I like to see flayed and stitched back together in different iterations, examining the unique ways in which we understand the sickness in the human condition.
