His artistic approaches are multiple and establish a relation between the material and the color, both changing in his work depending on the perspective and point of view. Franck Miltgen first explorated the public space by practicing graffiti. His artistic approaches are multiples but always connecting the material, the texture, the shape and the colours. He investigates the relations between light and material but also the relations between application of a material and its presentation. The series developed by Franck Miltgen are created from experiments the artist conducted for years. Miltgen’s works are immersives, dynamics and optics, Franck Miltgen’s creations offer a wide range of sensorial experiences by creating an illusion of an embossed support of varying colors and shifting-tones effect changing with creases and bumps created while folding the material. The material is more than a support, being folded and creased, Miltgen produces high relief supports transforming the space of the objet-work of art, but also the surrounding space, by creating tensions and distorsions. From this new materiality and geometrical shapes confrontation emerge a play of forces transforming the notion of work of art to a new aesthetical presence.
