Antoine Desjardins

For numerous years, Antoine Desjardins has been committed in the fine art field on topics around sculpture and its making up. His various subjects use tensions between cultural values and natural organisations which are disclosed by graphic and photographic images. After getting his Master’s degree on “The use of plastic materials in art” in the University of Provence Aix-Marseille (1980), Antoine lived and worked in New York city from 1981 to 1990. He currently lives in Paris where he pursues a reflexion on the influence of digital tools and language in the process of form creation in fine art.
