Biography

French Pop artist Claude Charlier is known for his hyper-realistic paintings of vintage and discarded objects, including cigarette packs, vintage lunch boxes and crushed soda cans. Charlier was born in Nancy, France and studied music and fine art for much of his life. He maintained a career as a professional photographer which led him to travel the world for many years and live not only in Europe and the USA, but for many years in Tokyo. It was during these travels that he was inspired by a discarded soda can and decided to create his Pop World Project, making painting his primary medium and also allowing him to concentrate on his art photography. Charlier’s choice to paint the discarded objects acts as a means to recycle them, and thus the beauty and memories associated with the consumers’ use.

   "I grew up in France - reading American comics, drinking Coca Cola and watching old Westerns. Americana was all the rage, and I fell for it in a big way. When I moved to Tokyo, I also fell in love with their animation and all the different types of soda and soda can designs that were sold in vending machines all over the city.
In choosing to paint discarded objects I felt that I was giving them another life. Recycling not only their form, but also their imperfect beauty and the moments they were a part of someone's life."
