Warhol is known the world over for his work as a painter. Here, the 32 cubes evoke the 32 soups he made. The painter, when inspiration is lost, represents the things he observes and loves until they lose their own meaning. Well-being comes from what we look at, what surrounds us and what we explore allowing us to clear our heads. To be an artist is to free yourself from any established rules, any constraints and leave room for your creativity, your feelings. It is letting every part of his soul permeate each of his works. It is not to represent what we learn, what we know, what we see but what we think and what we dream.
To be an artist is to clear your head, to free your mind.

Aket (also known as Aket Kubic) is a French painter who has been a self-taught artist since his early childhood. He was initially influenced by comic books and graffiti, but today his primary inspiration comes from cubism, although he also appreciates the works of artists such as Combas and Basquiat.
From the time he first started creating graffiti, Aket has always signed his art pieces with the name "AKET." It was only ten years later that he began to sign his artwork with this name, which has now become his signature.
Over time, Aket's style has evolved to include deconstructed portraits in which he multiplies elements and shapes of the faces, accentuating the features and lines. His artwork is heavily influenced by cubist painters such as Picasso and Condo, and he shapes faces in a playful, ludic way that can be both abstract and figurative, but always cubic.
In his artwork, Aket likes to draw from everyday life and music, using French jokes and battles of wit to recreate a frozen world from the old days. He enjoys representing life and the many facets of a person, from bistro scenes to musicians. The black lines in his paintings highlight the different and complex shapes of a face.
Today, Aket devotes himself to creating lifestyle scenes both indoors and outdoors. His final step is to give life to the representation of daily scenes and actions, bringing a sense of movement and energy to his artwork.
French Artist Aket was featured in the 2023 Coca-Cola commercial ad "Masterpiece".
