Mambo is a famous French contemporary artist from the urban art movement who lives in Los Angeles. He is influenced by Roy Lichtenstein, Pietr Mondrian, Keith Haring and Dubuffet.
Improvisation and automation lead Mambo’s work. The core theme of his creation is 'Man'- his recurrent orange figure who could be everyone’s personification - and through various attitudes called 'les emotifs' the artist is capturing the essence of humanity. The particular warm and flash orange used by the artist is a guiding principle as is the continuous research of visual harmony in his graphic compositions. Flavien Demarigny aka Mambo (b.1969) grew up in Latin America and started his artist career in Paris.
Mambo has exhibited in galleries and museums around the globe, such as Centre Pompidou. He also collaborated to creative projects with Prada, Canal Plus, Samsung and Vans. His works are now showcased in Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Paris, Geneva and London.
