Ardif is a French street artist based in Paris. During his studies of architecture, he is interested in the aesthetics of the building and the machine at different scales. Today, his work explores possible hybridisations between architecture / machine and nature. His series of “mechanimals” is the illustration of this graphic universe and is visible on the walls of the capital. The natural symmetry of the animal allows a composition that plays on the contrast of materials, scales and textures. This urban fauna creates a contrast that questions us about the impact of the artificialisation of nature or, conversely, of the wild and primitive instinct to be found in our urban life.
