Bordering on the Absurd Art by Charles Leval
Charles Leval, known as Levalet, was born in 1988 in Epinal. He grew up in Guadeloupe, a region where he came into contact with urban culture and then visual arts.
He continues his studies of visual arts in Strasbourg; his work, then more turned to video, feeds on a theatrical practice. He obtained the aggregation in 2012, the year when his work began to take place in the streets of Paris and elsewhere.
The work of Levalet is above all a work of drawing and installation. He stages his characters drawn in Indian ink in the public space, in a game of visual and semantic dialogue with the present environment. The characters interact with the architecture and unfold in situations often bordering on the absurd.
