Aurèle

Aurèle





Born in 1963 in Paris.

Lives and works in Paris and Mexico.


A self-taught artist, Aurèle began her artistic career in 1985 with the creation of chrome yellow No. 2, named International Aurèle Yellow (IAY) in tribute to the International Klein Blue, being a great admirer of Yves Klein. He made himself known to the Parisian art world in the late 1980s and was then influenced by industrial art, Warhol and Léger, but quickly felt the urgent need to break with the revisionist facilities of the 1980s.

In 1986, during his first trip to New York, he met Andy Warhol and began working on the poster of the lost dog Bob, the lost dog, met randomly from a street.

In 1987, he met Raymond Hains and discovered poetry. He founded in New York the S.I.D.A (Service Industriel du Dollar Artistique), a selection of names of artists belonging to the art market, as well as the magazine Polazine (succession of instant images linked by a thought) of which he published 11 issues in the year.

In 1988 began his series S.P.A (Pirate Symbol Added - Not To Mention Others - Unpretentious None), journey of the dog Bob in contemporary art and appropriation of works from Duchamp to Warhol.


“His LostDog is a trademark, his yellow is a colour of hope. Aurèle is the prototype of a generation of artists without complexes and no state of mind, an action on the ground more than a simple artistic posture, a way of being more than a way of showing. The artist Aurèle (born in 1963) is recognized by a certain power of affirmation.

If a word could undoubtedly define its relationship to the world, a word that animates both its work and its life, it would be: ACTION. Aurèle’s work takes on the appearance of a fight: a fight for Art as much as a fight for Life. A committed artist, Aurèle’s work conveys a message of urgency and resistance to the diseases of an era whose LostDog becomes the symbol. Aurèle has been developing the same radical project of denouncing modern wanderings for more than twenty-five years.

Its objective: to mobilize present and future generations in the face of wars, epidemics, ecological disasters, political and media excesses, precariousness and exclusion, inequalities and overconsumption. In the world of Aurelius, art confronts reality and thus becomes a true «mirror of modernity».


An international artist, he has exhibited in galleries around the world, notably in Paris, Tokyo and New York.


Aurèle’s six solo exhibitions took place at Galerie Lara Vincy: S.P.A. in 1989, Les Miroirs de la Modernité in 1990, SidaCosyKItsch in 1992, La vie en jaune in 2006, Chantons sous la pluie in 2011 and Be Water My Friend Be Water My Love in 2022.
