Bastien "Primal" Ghouila reigns from the Montpellier, France collective, Atelier Triptyque. He recently made a big impact on NYC by painting every day for one month for Owley clients such as mixmag, LowBrow Artique, Brooklyn Cider House, and two private clients.
He has built a universe around retro characters, skinned, dismantled. His scenes are punctuated by a tangle of geometric and organic elements, shared between a quirky dream and a sometimes disturbing atmosphere. Most often, Primal represents what the complexity of a tormented spirit is for him. A deep curiosity for what apparently inspires the human being and the deeper torments that surround them. Primal owes his inspiration to the world of comics, which has always surrounded him and pushed to tell his stories in his own way.
