Alain Séchas
French, b. 1955
Follow

Best known for his cartoon-like sculptures of humanoid bodies with cat heads, Alain Séchas makes art that is both humorous and confrontational. Constructed out of polystyrene or Plexiglas, Séchas’s Pop art-influenced works reflect all that is admirable and contemptible in people, using his benign-looking figures to launch critiques of social ills. For example, the tentacles of the octopus in the installation entitled La Pieuvre (1990) wreak havoc in a city of ghosts, a deceptively charming comment on rampant criminality.
