In this digital age and era of virtual reality, artist Arcade Latour
offers intriguing works of intense colour created through the use of the
age-old medium that is printer’s ink. Latour discovered this medium and its potential
while still a teenager. Fascinated by the intensity of the colours and the density
of its texture, he made it his passion to explore and master its possibilities.
An accomplished graphic artist, Arcade Latour lays on canvas an entire universe
of forms and colours that eventually gain a raised texture and relief.
His paintings, initially perceived as a comprehensive and captivating ensemble,
