Despite receiving high praise from his teachers and peer group, he surprised many by joining the Royal Navy on leaving school. Five years and twenty- one countries later, Lhouette returned to the UK, inspired and refreshed by the diverse cultures he had encountered.
Lhouette wasted no time in establishing himself as a creative force to be reckoned with. Within four years he had founded a high street art studio and exhibition space and achieved a post- graduate diploma in the arts from Birkbeck College, whilst simultaneously forging a name for himself on the contemporary art scene as an exceptionally skilled and innovative artist.
Lhouette’s mixed media artworks are instantly recognizable by their vibrant colours schemes and trademark stripes, layering areas of intense detail through the use of spray paint and stenciling. Despite evident urban influences and references to pop culture, Lhouette’s style refuses to be defined, continuing to develop and evolve with astonishing momentum.
His sell- out debut solo exhibition and nomination for the Fine Art Trade Guild’s ‘Best Up and Coming Artist’ award in 2014 caused many critics to recognize his work as a promising investment and solidifying his reputation as one of today’s most innovative artists.
With much of his career yet ahead of him, Lhouette is without a doubt the most exciting figure on today’s art scene; a young artist whose potential knows no limits.
