Christophe Maunoury, born in 1962, works and lives in Paris. He has always been passionate about art. Visiting the many art museums and shows in Paris inspired him to become a painter.
He developed his art interests at Ateliers des Beaux-Arts de la Ville de Paris (Atelier Montparnasse) from 1999 to 2004. He is an abstract painter and loves to explore the interaction between paint and different textures of paper. His painting is very physical and spontaneous, his gesture quick and precise. His continued exploration of deconstructive processes in his painting is unrivaled. A video on his creative processes has been realized after his last solo exhibition at A2Z Art Showroom in Paris in 2015. He has been selected for a Residency by the ESKFF at Mana Contemporary in Jersey City, NJ. Christophe Maunoury has had several solo exhibitions across France and has also been included in group shows. His work is held in private and corporate collections throughout France and Europe.
Born in Moscow 1983, I work as a film and theatre art director/set decorator and a portret painter
I started to paint since I was 17 - studied in Saint-Petersburg Art Academy and Muchin Art Colledge for a couple of years, but from the very beginning the only thing that I was passionate about was a human face. I’ve been painting portraits and self-portraits for almost 10 years now and I’m still amazed by that subject.
I’ve done several projects consisting series of portraits of groups of people. The most remarkable are The Beholders (The young viewers of Praktika Theatre in Moscow ,2012); Kids of the World (Portraits of 100 kids from 10 different countries, 2011-2013); Gogol Centre People (20 portraits of actors and workers of Gogol Centre Theatre in Moscow, 2016)
Also I’ve been doing private portrait orders from people on regular basis all that time - from a small single portraits to a big group family portraits .
What am I to say then? Human creatures - with their soul, spirit energy - is a mystery and a wonder, and there is no one like another one, each is a whole universe.
During this 3 month residency I am primarily working with the industrial housing material, Tyvek, which I discovered in 2008 wrapped on houses, I begin with handcutting (without prior sketching) marks that cannot be erased. I'm interested in advancing the material
using process of making it unrecognizable from its original purpose and function, which is to seal and protect.
In intervening with positive and negative space, and pushing the form with manipulation, I am engaged in what it
is to stretch and develop a material's potential, as a symbol for change and transformation
led by chance, control and uncertainty, elements of both life and art.
In drawing, gesture, and layering, making is part of the content.--
