Who am I ?
Born in 1991, Persévérance Madianga of his full name developed a sensitivity to art at a very young age. Passionate about sport, music and cinema, this self-taught artist freed himself from institutions to embark on his own in drawing and give free rein to his creativity. Realizing a drawing of the singer BlackM who then shares his work on social networks, it is at this moment that everything changes and that many celebrities, seduced by his ultra realistic pencil stroke, decide to work with him. Inspired by artists such as: CJ Hendry or Thierry Duval, Percymad's drawings are imbued with precision, movement effects, strength, as if to capture on the spot, with as much realism and intensity as possible, expressions, postures, actions.
"I especially try to put movement in my works, to stage situations, to let the observer guess a continuation and to create his own story".
Elected Artist of the Year at the Talents de la Sarthe 2018, ambassador of the color pencil brand Faber-Castell; Percymad has also joined the Sarthe Ambassadors club, the aim being to promote the department during its travels, meetings and artistic projects.
