Born in 1957 - Belgium
Michel Degraeve is a French draftsman born in 1957.
Michel has always appreciated the world of art, he practices drawing since his childhood. It was a family event that pushed him to decide to finally work in this field.
Michel Degraeve is a self-taught artist and his work is easily recognizable. The artist takes old photographs of 10s and 20s as his models and he reproduces the female silhouettes in ink. His pieces are pretty nostalgic due the sepia tone he uses on them, they bring the observer back to the beginning of the century.
For Michel Degraeve the date of the images that he chooses to work with, was not chosen randomly, on the contrary! For the artist, the first decades of the twentieth century marked a major turning point in the lives of women who finally decide to protest, and his artwork is his way to give them a nice tribute.
