In 2015, Mambo started with a new series of abstract paintings. When Mambo confronted the public with his very new and different approach he decided to sign them with his first name, Flavien, because they appeared exceedingly different from his well-known paintings. These canvases consist of a rather geometrical texture and minimal color variations. Vertical brushstrokes are the simple yet effective trademark of Flavien’s series. The technic is a result of a long-standing study and experience in art, but also influenced by the assistant years to Sol LeWitt, in the mid 90ies. Different art movements as well as artists are still inspiring Flavien’s artistic practice, such as: Franck Stella, Yayoi Kusama, Ellsworth Kelly, Piet Mondrian and Jackson Pollock.
