THOMAS HENRIOT is a French Artist born in France in 1980. He has studied in Ecole des Beaux Arts de Besançon and presently lives and works between Rio de Janeiro, Havana and Paris. His drawings are Ink on Japanese rice paper scrolls 45 centimetres wide and sometimes up to 25 metres long which he unwinds as the progression of the drawings goes along, composing in a near-spontanious way. Thomas uses his art as a link and a language to create contact with unknown spectators who witnesses the elaboration of his works. He juxtaposes in figurative motif, landscapes, architectures, characters, the rubbing of real elements which are at his disposal around him. The liveliness, its continuity, the magnitude of the movement give an originality to all these travel documentaries, album of memories but also a successful realization of a choreographed performance in the urban place. The body movement organizes the drawing space in an existential process.

”Across the City” brings together Thomas’ experience of his numerous journeys in Morocco, Lebanon, Togo, China, Argentina, Oman, Mai, Mauritania, USA, Cuba, Brazil and particularly India which marked an essential stage in his approach which places his paintings in the heart of a different culture, in a concentration close to meditation.
