‘Soukhos’ documents the outcomes of Raphaël Barontini’s LVMH Métiers d’Art artist residency at the Heng Long Leather tannery in Singapore in 2020. Held during the Covid-19 pandemic, the residency was unique, yet Barontini managed to maintain and develop his creativity despite the circumstances. The unusual conditions proved to be a source of exceptional inspiration for this Parisian artist. His practice involves bold silkscreens and digital prints that colourfully embellish a variety of materials, such as flags, banners, capes, tapestries, and more. With a hybrid language he explores different historical and cultural symbols, from European portraits to Afro-Caribbean figures.
