Fred Avella

Born in 1975 into a family of stonemasons for 4 generations. Bathed in the family business from an early age. Already at the age of 12, his father taught him how to polish, cut, carve stone and marble. At 21, the town of Sanary on the Côte d'Azur chose him for the renovation of several fountains and statues. His work is the result of the influence of pop culture, cartoons and comics. He creates Freud, his first series of sculptures, through which he manifests his intention to demystify certain animals by giving them deliberately exaggerated proportions and curves. The key word is to parody the iconic character in a fun way. To imagine scenes, characters, objects with child's eyes. He creates, customizes, revisits his subjects by giving them a Pop Art aesthetic touch and vibrant colors
