Biography Georges Moquay
Georges Moquay was born in France to Rotraut Uecker, the widow of Yves Klein and sister to Gunther Uecker, and grew up surrounded by artists such as Pierre Restany, Arman, Cesar, and Niki de Saint-Phalle. Beginning painting at 24, Moquay has explored the process of creating work, sometimes incorporating video or music in a rave-like art experience. In his paintings he uses an amalgam of icons and symbols. In his latest work (2011) "bodiless thick-outlined heads, Moquay's "warriors", encircle the long-necked white buddhas in a scene of cultural fusion made up of postmodern hieroglyphics. Moquay's "warriors" draw on Aztec pictographs, Mexico's Dia de los Muertos' skeleton Catrinas, and even the head of Pez candy dispenser. U
