Architect, decorator and graphic artist, particularly active in the years 1920-1930, Serge Gladsky identified with the Art Deco movement inspired by his interests abstraction and geometry. In this desire for simplification, he finds a new means of graphic expression thanks to the stencil, a technique that combines with bright and shimmering colors and which becomes a real visual spectacle.
