For 15 years the French artist Nicoh creates sculptures. Nicoh: “At the beginning I just wanted to offer an original present to a friend when he retired. When I saw that people love my works, the idea came to me to create trophies for the best pilots of rally, like the French driver Sébastien Loeb.”
Now the sculptor, who lives in the southeast of France, has developed a new style: “the POLO touch”. Each summer he spends his holidays in St. Tropez and takes great delight in watching polo matches at the Polo Club St. Tropez. From this ambiance he gets inspiration for his work. As of late he makes use of polo balls and horseshoes when creating his masks.
For his works he mostly uses the four materials stone, iron, wood and Plexiglas. To have a good result he combines three of the materials. Nicoh: “I think I’m influenced by African art and I love the contrast of old things associated with modern material colours.”
He already had the chance to present his works on several occasions: Some years ago he created the sculpture “Bird” for the club Papagayo in St. Tropez and last winter during the “International Circus Festival of Monte-Carlo” he exhibited the sculpture “Clown” at the yacht club in Monaco. At this year’s BMW Polo Masters of St. Tropez he presented one of his sculptures to Jean-Yves Delfosse, inventor and organiser of the tournament.
