Shaka (Marchal Mithouard), is a French artist who started his career in street art, and has become famous through his singular technique: by incorporating elements that seem to be carved directly on the support, his works are coming out of the plane support and and seem to become three-dimensional.
He is a great portraitist and fragments the faces to capture the "rawest" expressions and to highlight the absurdity of human behaviors. As his complex technique only allows him to produce only a few works every year and he has numerous commissions abroad, his works are quite rare in France.
"Currently my aim is to work on volume, on movement and depth. I often depict characters who are grinning, exacerbated or violent attitudes, as there is a lot of movement, character and strong expressions in my work" says Shaka.
