Born in 1972, Mathias Kiss is a French contemporary artist. At the age of 14, he joined Journeymen with whom during 10 years there, he learned the techniques and know-how of traditional French architecture and decorative arts. Mathias Kiss is an iconoclast and dandy with boundless creative energy. In his art, he folds academicism to find new codes and to break down the barriers between disciplines by association French classicism and avant-gardism. In his work he plays with French classicism, preserving and updating 'historic codes' by putting them in a contemporary context.
From white flags for peace to the black flag of pirates, and the rainbow flag for pride, in the folds of the flag there is an almost magical power. From the legendary and conquering flags of history books to the Stars and Stripes planted on the moon, they move with the command of icons and trophies. One of the oldest forms of media in the world, the flag now occupies a renewed place in public space. This is increasingly true in virtual public and online social networks. As a new media, it invites us to raise our heads to the sky. The flags of artists have become vectors of communication.
