Decktwo’s absorbing drawings combine influences from architecture and an organic energy that powers urban environments. Thomas Dartigues is the actual name of the artist, who is a former street artist who switched to crafting massive works in markers. Decktwo is based in Paris.
“The city is one of my favorite sources of inspiration,” the artist says, in a statement. “Its sprawling energy that spreads its tentacles from the center outwards, its ways of networking and connectivity, the way its evolution is expressed through scale – all of it makes up the DNA of my creations. The city is an entity with two faces: it is a place of tension and power struggles, but also it is an incredible energy vessel. This dynamic is one of the foundations of my work – the pulsating force that pushes me to rethink the city. By reinventing the perception of its energy and playing with the scale, I tend to create an immersive world in which everyone can dive and get inspired.”
