Marchal MITHOUARD (Shaka) is born in 1975. He lives and works in Igny (91, France).

As an artist, for fifteen years, Marchal Mithouard has been striving strives to portray his contemporaries in their most characteristic expressions. He discovered spray painting in 1995 and soon his colourful faces with almost caricatural expressions covered the walls of Evry, his hometown.

He explores in parallel several media: painting, sculpture, graffiti, silkscreen, digital photo, tattoo before resolutely direct his work to painting and portraiture. The facesand bodies are fragmented, ribbed, identified black, the nerves to alive, as if they were wearing a mask or if they were, on the contrary, emaciated.

In 2007, Marchal (Shaka) adds to some paints a third dimension directly sculpting on the canvas using lightweight materials. Culmination of previous research, this form joint novel leaves a new room for spontaneity, to the accident, to unusual expressions of the contemporary world. The canvas becomes the space of transition between two worlds, that his characters through to challenge the "looking".

 Since 2012, he greatly refined his technique through the use of volume. He gives his sculptures the fineness of his work on canvas, making its expressiveness and the motions all the more striking.
