Sylvain Lang was born in 1965 and currently lives and works in Nancy. He mainly paints but also knows very well and uses the codes of conceptual art, particularly in his video installations.
Like the classic impressionists, he paints real scenes of everyday life. His work captures instants and scenes from reality. The various subjects of his paintings speak of our time - young people swimming at the sea, a crowd in the streets -, but also everyday objects - an Italian coffeepot, a Vespa - which are contemporary icons in the Sylvain's eyes. He appropriates objects embedded in our collective unconscious and moments of universal life and offers an alternative interpretation of reality.
