  • AREPO: born in 1990 and self-taught. Arepo comes from the magic square SATOR AREPO TENET OPERA ROTAS (the peasant leads the plow / we are masters of our destiny).

    AREPO: born in 1990 and self-taught. Arepo comes from the magic square SATOR AREPO TENET OPERA ROTAS (the peasant leads the plow / we are masters of our destiny). Arepo is a hapax - a word seen only once in the literature - which in itself has no meaning but allows the magic square to work. Arepo, for a vision of art as something superficial perhaps, sometimes useless but essential in a whole: society. AREPO's work, in black and white, questions human relations, relationships with the environment and the influence of the media… A dreamer who has forgotten to wake up or a utopian lost in a nightmare, AREPO draws its inspiration from various artists. As well in the engravings of Dürer as in the sketches of the Humboldt brothers and Bonpland through the Lowbrow movement and Art Nouveau. AREPO has a special attachment to the animal and plant world which is still full of mysteries today. Focusing on the making of chimeras and the representation of ancient or modern mythical creatures, AREPO seeks to highlight the wonders of the animal and plant world and to give meaning to the place of man in his ecosystem.
