The artist addresses his artistic research to the notion of diversion, where shapes and images are at the core of his reflection. Maxime Boutin wants to drive the audience in a universe characterized by a sense of suspension in which the artist plays with the inversion of elements. His works show a sense of cyclic nature: there is always a rhythm characterized by moments of tension and moments of serenity, appearance and disappearance.
Born in Colombes in 1988. He graduated with honors from École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts of Montpellier. In 2015 the city of Crès commissioned him a monumental work, titled Sémaphore.
