“Art to illustrate the building finishing work industry? When our customers are true ARTISTS and the link between the world of ART and that of ARTisans is so close, we have obviously commissioned the creation of an original work to a renowned contemporary artist every year for over 10 years. After VanLuc, De Caroline, Chanoir, Jo Di Bona, Astro, Bishop Parigo, Le Cyklop, Jace, Skwak, Speedy Graphito, it’s the turn of PIOTRE this year to deliver its vision of the building finishing work sector that we share with you and all our stakeholders. This is also what a company committed to you and with you is all about!”

An artistic culture

It all started in 2011 with catalogue covers that change and stand out, a decidedly offbeat artistic imprint in the world of the building market. This has several advantages: federate our internal and external stakeholders around a common vibrant project and promote ART, ARTisanat and our ARTisan customers. The idea is also to make art lively and accessible to all, and to share it.

Internally, the exhibition and creation of original works of art on LEGALLAIS’ premises encourages cohesion among employees and involves them in unifying events. Externally, LEGALLAIS stands out with a different and unique approach through a strong identity on and outside our walls. A new story with a contemporary artist is established each year, inspired by a new graphic style, with a single aim: not to be just another catalogue of just another company. LEGALLAIS is LEGALLAIS!

“Artist and artisan, it’s just a question of letters”: Chanoir

The artist of the year

PIOTRE, graffiti artist, originally from Caen, with a singular style, supercharged and recognizable at first glance, delivers with the original work “EXTRATOPIE” his re-interpretation of what LEGALLAIS is, a compagny resolutely oriented towards its customers : a universe of expertise, specialists, technicality, proximity, relationships, dynamism, distribution, services and commerce.

A colorful, dynamic, living, moving universe… It adds emotion, that of the soul of a sustainable and unique company.

PIOTRE’s style

At just 36 years orld, Pierre Ygouf, better known under the pseudonym “PIOTRE” is part of this new generation of graffiti artists whose popularity continues to rise. This jack of all trades accumulates influences and does not hesitate to mix styles. Initially marked by street art and throw up, his graphic research evolved towards the figurative influences of Keith Haring, Speedy, André and the codes of Bauhaus, but also towards more abstract work on color, in the tradition of Di Rosa, JonOne or Cope2. The graffiti artist favors a palette of primary colors which he then mixes with black and white to create stronger contrasts.
