Maxime Taccardi
Artist | Traditional Art
To whrite a short bio, I studied art in college, my master thesis was about the monstruosity, and more especially about what is considered abnormal by common society. I'm currently an art teacher in midle school near Paris but my main goal is to keep going on art.
My will and ambition is to create some sort of a Gesamtkunstwerk to quote Wagner, a total art with Synesthesia. My art consists of paintings, drawings but also short films, videos and music.
Here are some videos I directed:…………
My visions come from my dreams for most of the time, I try to let an open wound between reality and dreams. My Blood paintings are symbolicly linked to that idea. I cut my wrists and use the brush directly on my wound like I do in this video:…
It is not intended to shock people like some would think but is merely a process. The final result is as important as the way to do it, I see art as some sort of a ritual, a chat between spirits and my mortal flesh. I do recall on what philosopher Plato said about art which is the manifestation of spirits through artist bodies.
Music, as a translation of my paintings into sounds is as important as my other practices. My project is named K.F.R which stands for kāfir (disbeliever in arabic), it is written on Dajjâl's forehead, the Antichrist in Islam. To me it is the absolute sound description of my paintings, it joins Kandinsky idea about his will to translate music into paint.
Here is my soundcloud page:


C'est en choisissant de traiter le portrait sur la monstruosité comme sujet de mémoire pour son master à l'université d'art que Maxime trouve sa sombre voie. Il affectionne les laissés pour comptes et les reclus de la société. Son ambition est de créer une sorte de Gesamtkunstwerk, autrement dit, une œuvre d'art totale emprunt de synesthésie incluant peintures, dessins, courts métrages,expérimentations vidéos et musique. Les fantômes qui peuplent ses œuvres naissent la nuit, dans les tréfonds cauchemardesques de ses rêves et laissent une plaie ouverte entre la réalité et l'au delà. Car la matière première de cet artiste est celui de sa propre vie : son sang, qu'il utilise comme encre pour ses chimères maléfiques.… Si cela peut choquer, ce n'en est pourtant pas le but initial, mais le processus inéluctable de création. Sorte de rituel de chair, discussion avec les invisibles et funambulisme sur le purgatoire. Maxime rejoins en cela Platon pour qui l'art serait, selon ses termes : « la manifestation des esprits à travers le corps de l'artiste. » La musique joue un rôle capital et indissociable de ses toiles. Extension sonores de ses spectres intérieurs apellé KFR. Maxime enseigne aujourd'hui les arts plastiques en région Parisienne et le kickboxing
