"Mechanical Lion" Herzogenstr. 36, Goch by Ardif @ardifstreetart from Paris were created in the wake of the Goch history meets Streetart Festival in April 2022 organized by Benjamin Taag and the Heimatverein Goch e.V. #ghmsfestival
Nice action, the Gocher could apply for it, and the demand was quite large!
His name is Ardif and he is a French street artist who works mainly in Paris and is recognizable thanks to the style of his works. Once you have discovered his art, you will be able to recognize it everywhere, if among a thousand murals there were also one of his murals, it would still be impossible to be wrong.
Ardif's favorite theme is animals, which he can depict hyper-realistically by capturing all the details of insects, lions, sharks, and so on. But that's not all.
The street artist copies reality, since it is only half of the figure, while for the other half his drawing becomes more and more mechanical, as if revealing a hypothetical scaffolding of bricks and gears hidden under the skin of his motifs.
