Philippe Le Miere is a shape-shifter of cultural icons. Taking the familiar and refracting it through his imagination, his wonderfully weird vision sees the everyday rendered surreal. Coupled with a distinct practice, Le Miere has earned a reputation for a style that is as original, as it is witty. Put up a work by Le Miere and reset not just your space, but also your mind.

Artist's Statement: "This series of movie poster paintings lead me on a journey, from the familiar to the unique. My aim, to take the iconic and render it individually. A difficult task given the global scale of Hollywood’s dream factory. Movies are now so ingrained in our culture, that the challenge of painting a subject so ubiquitous, yet so foreign to the tradition of painting, intrigued me. ...These paintings might simply remind you of your favorite film. Or may open up questions, such as why have these films touched so many people’s lives? For me, as the artist, it was a discovery of individuality - within an ever increasingly global culture." - Philippe Le Miere 2018
