Franco La Russa aka Thion Born 1969 in France Thion’s work combines some of the value associated with “fine art” (formal precision and austerity) with those often associated with mass culture (speed and directness). Initially inspired by Keith Haring and the American Pop artists with whom he shared the same interest in popular culture, mass media as well as graffitirelated sign and symbols, his work has evolved into a style that embraces different influences. Thion is continuing experimenting with medium and materials, lines and size, creating new forms and colour palettes. He has embraced a new digital medium and he is currently creating work on an iPad. Whatever the medium, Th ion strives through his art to make the ordinary extraordinary. Taking experiences from our daily lives and mundane happenings and elevate them to magical status.
