BACK TO AMERICA
ARTRIDE Opening party
THURSDAY JUNE 22, 5:30pm
Eclectic exhibition by essence, the ARTRIDE VIII will take place again at the Biarritz Skatepark a few minutes from the W&W Village.
Daring, poetic, off-beat, creativity will explode in every shape and form around the theme “Back to America”! Between major works of art, radical visions and forgotten “savoir faire”, we will immerse ourselves in the artists’ universe and let dreams take over.
Join us at the Biarritz Skatepark THURSDAY JUNE 22, from 5:30 pm to live the Artride VIII “Back to America” opening party.
Music, Food & Beverage on site…
June 23 to 24
Artride access from 12pm to 8pm.
Sébastien de Oliveira
Born in Chartres in 1970, Sébastien De Oliveira studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Le Mans and then in Orléans. After graduating in illustration and photography, he moved to Milan in 1997 where he lived for 7 years. He worked there as an illustrator for an architect before assisting the fashion illustrator François Berthoud for 4 years.
Back in Paris in 2004, he works as a retoucher for fashion houses (Givenchy, Maison Martin Margiela, Dior). In 2016, Sébastien De Oliveira starts colorizing photographs.
3 years later, he publishes “Here and Now”, a series of 40 colorizations of Dunkirk during the occupation by the photographer Adeline Debaene- Kiesecoms to the editions L’Erre de rien. His images were exhibited in the Dunkirk archives the same year.
He then colorized photographs for the Louis Vuitton book “Voyages extraordinaires” published by Xavier Barral as well as archive images of Wimbledon for the official sponsor OPPO.
In October 2022, Editions du Chêne published his book “Back To America” which includes 173 colorizations of America in the 40s.
