At the age of 20, after 10 years of musical education and practicing the violin, Le Havre artist Sckaro whose birth name is Oscar Maslard, chose painting.
Since childhood, general knowledge and curiosity are essential values for him. From a few walls covered with graffiti, to contemporary abstract paintings, passing by a transitional facture : dreamlike hyperrealism influenced by Old Masters, it is the story of a vocation, of the desire not to do something else with its life.
For his oil paintings, he adopted and became interested in classical painting's techniques : work on canvas, grey tones, glazing, varnish, as well as its codes such as drapery and flesh, to adapt them to the contemporary world. The staging is sometimes unlikely, sometimes realistic, its central point is often the humans and their relations.
