Trëz Orb, known as Treize-Orbscurarium


Trëz Orb, known as Treize-Orbscurarium is a mixed media contemporary french artist. we read in his site:

Trëz manipulates and combines different creation tools such as painting, photomontage or sculpture. His works confronts "Matter and Spirit." He shapes chaotic structures, kinds of composite architectures where body, organic shapes and geometric volumes overlap each other. His vision of our company is represented by the mixture of mediums and the accumulation of successive layers. A world where we seek what is hiding behind things... beyond appearances.

Trëz already had the chance to participating in great exhibitions (in France, United States, Japan, Belgium, Spain...) with a lot of amazing artists like HR Giger, Olivier de Sagazan, Seth Siro Anton, Yoann Penard, Nico [Fracture//Lab], Delphyne V., Paul Toupet, Patrice "Pit" Hubert and more... He is the co-founder of the Oxyum art collective and of the Octopulse video art collective. Trëz lives and works in Paris (France).

Roland Topor


Roland Topor (1938 – 1997), was a French illustrator, painter, writer, filmmaker and actor, known for the surreal nature of his work.

Roland Topor wrote the novel The Tenant (Le Locataire chimérique, 1964), which was adapted to film by Roman Polanski in 1976. The Tenant is the story of a Parisian of Polish descent, a chilling exploration of alienation and identity, asking disturbing questions about how we define ourselves. The later novel Joko's Anniversary (1969), another fable about loss of identity, is a vicious satire on social conformity.

He wrote two songs for Megumi Satsu, "Je m'aime" and "Monte dans mon Ambulance"

With René Laloux, Topor made "The Dead Times" ("Les Temps morts", 1964), "The Snails" ("Les Escargots", 1965) and their most famous work, the feature length La Planète Sauvage (1973). Topor also worked as an actor, his most famous part being Renfield in Werner Herzog's Nosferatu: Phantom der Nacht (1979). In the same year, he also performed the surrealistic paralyzed boss in the movie Ratataplan by Maurizio Nichetti.

Topor published several books of drawings, including Dessins panique (1965) Quatre roses pour Lucienne (1967) and Toporland (1975). Selections from Quatre roses pour Lucienne were reprinted in the English language collection Stories and Drawings (1967). His carefully detailed, realistic style, with elaborate crosshatching, emphasises the fantastic and macabre subject matter of the images.
