uno dei pionieri del movimento inter rail all’interno della scena del writing europeo, esploratore ed instancabile avventuriero. Luoghi abbandonati e dimenticati da un progresso che non si cura delle macerie che lascia dietro di se, tunnel che attraversano il sottosuolo delle città, bunker militari, paesi esotici [l’elenco infatti include gli uni e gli altri: paesi lontani o fabbrica abbandonate, rappresentano per l’artista mondi da esplorare parimenti affascinanti] o depositi ferroviari: ogni luogo ed ogni incontro diventa ispirazione per i suoi dipinti.
Con uno stile estremamente grafico e minimale nel segno, Honet trasforma le esperienze vissute e fotografate in dipinti pieni di allegorie e simboli, capaci di riassumere con poche immagini esperienze complesse ed “avventure straordinarie" (aventuresextraordinaires.fr è infatti il nome del suo sito web).

 

Explorer and tireless adventurer, he is one of the pioneers of the inter-rail movement within the European writing scene. Abandoned places, forgotten by progress that does not take care of the ruins it left behind, tunnels crossing cities’ underground, military bunkers, railway depots, distant and unknown countries: every place and every meeting become inspiration for his paintings.
With an extremely graphic style and a minimal sign, Honet transforms the experiences he lived and shot in his travels into paintings full of symbols and allegories, able to summarize through a few images, complex experiences and extraordinary adventures.
For Vicolo Folletto Art Factories the French artist created two illustrations inspired by a recent trip to the United States representing the latest evolution of his eclectic journey.
The images, reminiscent of ASCII art
, are combined with an elaborate lettering that becomes a pictogram.
The fascination for the ancient civilizations, for secret sects and for codes, is represented here in an extremely synthetic way, using graphic signs and the almost exclusive use of the black color.
We are therefore witnessing the creation of a new illustrative style that mixes current languages, inspired by the use of computers, with emoticons, graffiti writing and ancient civilizations, such as runes or hieroglyphics, to create a new “Graffiti Standard Code for Illustrations Interchange”.
