This skull seems to have recently escaped from one of the many Mexican “Day of the Dead” festivities. It surely portrays Michaël Cailloux’s research and work around the theme of death. A joyful death, where sadness has no place. A death that can sometimes be more lively than life itself, to which this smiling skull is a testament. The artist always goes back and forth between classic and modern, thus revisiting in his own fanciful way the vanities of previous centuries.

Art gives in to nature and the beauty of humour. This comb is certainly excessive, but hairstyling is not its intention. It’s an ode, a peaceful homage to a love of nature and its fragility. It’s not up to nature to be functional anymore, to transform itself into an object. It’s up to the object to become nature and pave its path until we forget it once had a utility, that it had a use, to just become beautiful and decorative. Aquatint etching

This piece, with the Eiffel Tower illuminated by floral fireworks and intimately adorned with two snails, is a love letter from Michaël Cailloux to Paris. The artist reminds us how even though the city has been hurt multiple times these past few years, it remains as majestic as ever. This piece is like a snapshot, a joyful postcard to refute and counter the tragic image imposed on the City of Lights. “We are Paris, we are together, we are happy” seem to be exclaimed by these two sensual gastropods. The animal with no animosity appears to be peaceful, soft and a bringer of hope before a cold and hopeless world. The grim and morbid can’t stay any longer; life and only life remains.
