    • Philippe Favier

    Information

    Appeared in the 1980s, the work of Philippe Favier immediately captivated and challenged by its singularity.

    If a few years he has exhibited around the world with artists free figuration, we quickly discovered that his world borrows heavily from cinema, poetry, the "great" painting and photography.

    Which characterizes the work of Favier is probably the permanence of his inventiveness and freedom it gives to break the images he initiates. In this company label, it is quite difficult to appear at each show with a renewed work. But for more than thirty years and after three retrospectives, Philippe Favier succeeded with an undeniable consistency to create works most abundant and most original of his generation.

    And for those that are classified too easily "beam painting" it is not without a certain playfulness that has met for the first time his work "photographic".
