Woleck - No more bets

 

Born in Nice in 1960 of parents from Eastern Europe, Richard Woleck started out as a musician. Vocalist and bass-guitar in the “Plein Sud” band in the 1980′s, then bass-guitar with the band “Pure”, he performed alongside internationatal artists such as David Bowie, for whom he played the first part of a concert at the Parc des Princes in 1996. He also played at the Arènes de Cimiez in Nice, sharing the line-up with Manu Katché and Jeff Beck among other prestigious artists.

 

 

In parallel to music, Woleck pursued his artistic vocation in urban paintings, superimposing and associating different materials. He incorporated new technologies into his work, new types of supports, portraying the western world and its ideological or commercial motivations with a critical and humorous eye.

 

 

 

Close to Pop Art with his use of globalised images, Richard Woleck launched in his own way a new reflexion on consumer society and the mass media. He throws light on the disillusionment felt by the modern world.

 

A versatile artist, curious about all forms of art, Richard Woleck will present sculptures produced in collaboration with Jean-Pierre Benaym in the Atrium at the Casino de Monte-Carlo.
