The School of Nice (l’École de Nice) does a lot of talking, especially in a city where the chat has an undeniable cultural value. Nice can boast of having been the birthplace or time work of renowned artists, who have forever marked the modern art of the twentieth century. It is undoubtedly that the city Nissart had something particular, of intimately different, which made this creative abundance. In other, more pictorial streams, some artists were able to talk about the unique light that bathes the shores of the Côte d’Azur. But this is not what allowed the emergence of so many creators. It is much more I think in the cultural and social environment that reigned then and which made cross plastic artists with different backgrounds but all found themselves as involved in the international modernist current (and especially American) of the time. The universe of Pop Art, Narrative Figuration, New Realism, Fluxus or Support / Surfaces, is a certain permeability, even a creative agitation that is in question. Because at the end of the 50s, the artist is not for some time already cloisonné to his canvas in his studio, nor imprisoned in the patience that imposes the composition of a landscape in situ. War has been misfortune, place now for Freedom and happiness! And this is strongly felt in all the artistic wealth of the time.
The Pink Cat for its part walks galleries galleries in Nice in Menton, through Saint-Paul de Vence and Monaco, also enjoying the serenity offered by the happiness of this mountainous coastline blessed by the Gods. It has built an identity by bathing in this rich culture, both local, traditional, perhaps I should say territorial, but also an international culture: the trend of the time that has greatly globalized human exchanges . Born in the early 2000s of the desire to imitate all these legendary characters I admired in the comic strips at the end of the Herald Tribune, the facetious feline has built an original identity, both Here and there.
