The artwork comes with a certificate of authenticity.
A one-of-a-kind painting on canvas.
The "Iconic" series highlights certain personalities who have marked history and popular culture. From Charles De Gaulle to Barbara, each character is taken into the graphic universe of Aket, then as a return to the street and to everyone's appropriation, Mazer is a legitimate tag figure. Mazer integrates in an instinctive, free and uninhibited way similar to the supports on which he could have expressed himself in the street. Thus, everyone can appropriate the subject and the tag intervenes to highlight the freedom of speech and creation.

Since his early childhood, Aket (also known as Aket Kubic) has been a self-taught artist. His first influences were comic books and graffiti. Today, its primary influence comes from cubism; even though he appreciates Combas or Basquiat’s artworks.
Since childhood, he has signed his art pieces by AKET from the time he has realized his first graffiti. This nickname comes from a personal physical characteristic which could be found in a punchline from a rap band. Like a homecoming, it is making perfect sense that he signs his first artworks with the name « AKET » ten years later.
His style has evolved over time. He creates deconstructed portraits by multiplying elements and shapes of the faces as well as accentuating the features and the lines.
In fact, we can find in his artworks influences from cubist painters such as Picasso or Condo. AKET shapes faces in a ludic way.
It could be abstract or figurative, but always cubic. He uses french jokes and battle of wits he draws from everyday life and mainly music in order to try to recreate this frozen world from the old days.
From Bistro scenes to musicians, AKET likes to represent life and the many facets of a person.
The black lines highlight the different and complex shapes of a face. He devotes himself now to lifestyle, indoors or outdoors scenes.
The final step of each of his artworks gives life to the representation of daily scenes and actions.
French Artist Aket was featured in the 2023 Coca-Cola commercial ad "Masterpiece".
