BL67 Famous cats – a series of ballpoint drawings which belong to BL67 – a self-taught French artist. BL67 lives and works in Paris, his inspiration comes from pop-art, comic strips, science fiction, religion and nature. He transposes Magrittes surrealist poetry, Miro’s simplicity, Glen Baxter absurd sketches, Boris Vian’s sonnets or writer Eric Chevillard’s “well-thought reflections” on canvas. The man says that he is “in love with drawing and ideas”, and admits to liking to look for simple and quirky ideas. He is very proud of his series called “Prices”, price tags glued on canvases. The way he set their price is an example of his humor. For example, the canvas calles “259 euros” composed of 259 tags for 1 euro, cost 259 euro. “Therefore”, comments the artist, “if the work becomes more valuable someday, the gain will be easy to calculate”.
