French artist Shaka (Marchal Mithouard) explores a wild intersection between painting, sculpture and graffiti with his colorfully explosive bas-relief sculptures that seem to cross from the canvas into reality. The aggressive human figures formed from a multitude of intertwined objects are partially inspired by the works of Caravaggio, Arcimboldo, and Van Gogh, all of whom the artists cites as influences in his work. Shaka had a recent solo show at Seize Gallery in Marseille, France and he has a number of prints available in his shop. Photographer Marie Aschehoug-Clauteaux also has a huge gallery of his works worth exploring.
