1 - Introduce your sticker art project
Sardo Marsiho, I'm 36, I was born in Marseille, France not far from Vauban ... where it goes! My career is all rebound, I will say, I am a project developer almost all terrain, and, whether in France or abroad, it is made of professional adventures and meetings. Drawing and calligraphy have always accompanied me since my childhood but it is only much later that I realized that they took up so much space in my daily life ... It's now five years that I seized the opportunity, thanks to the character of the sardine, to turn my passion into a art-profession.
The visual was born during one of my daily sessions of "night scribbles" a few days before my trip to Montreal. As often in these moments I like to repeat the word "Marseille" all at once. One evening, chance and error were invited: the form of the word "Marseille", which I had just written, looked like a fish... At that moment the Sardine was born. And it was later, in Montreal, that I painted the first "Sardine of Marseille".
Since then, this peculiar personage has led me to create my own artistic-initiatory experience much like in "Vatanen's hare", a novel by Arto Paasilinna that I particularly like. Opportunities and encounters push me to bring new adventures to my character and to invent, to "go out of the box" and to invest specifically, each order, place of exhibition, meeting, project, etc ...
Since the beginning, I have always associated my old works on canvas, with the pleasure of making live my character freely in an urban environment, through supports like Stickers and collages... I always have the desire, the need to renew my work constantly both on appearance and in its forms of artistic expression. To cultivate my curiosity and my artistic approach and especially to have fun in what I do.
"Sardine OF Marseille" has the local identity pegged to the body; Like no other sardine, she is in the depths of herself, even in her skeleton, "to the end of the edges"! The name of the city is its essence, its substance, its skeleton. Other sardines could be drawn but it is brought alive and its expressiveness is infinite; the eye and the eyebrow of this sardine can reveal it joyous, severe, angry, malicious, timid, astonished, curious...
2 - In what creative ways have you collaborated with other sticker artists?
I never collaborate with other sticker artists.
3 - Have you ever organized an event about sticker art? If not, you can write something about an event you have attended
I never organised an event about stickers. I do some expositions with canvas.
4 - What are your future projects in the world of sticker art?
My future project for stickers it's create an event in Marseille because nothing exists around this universe.
5 - What sticker artists do you admire or are important to you?
Whaoouu a lot... to be honest I discover each day with surprise this universe which is extremely widespread in the world and very creative. Now I am very much the job of Merioone, The Cool Slap, King Kong from mexico, Wolf Street Artist, Yolo Sticker, Super Shorty Man, StickermaidBerlin and Stelleconfuse of course. Especially since I am these artists on Instagram.
