Raphaël Denis

Born in 1978 - France


Since the early 2000s, Raphaël Denis has built a visual arts language based on the formats, materials and vocabulary that belong to the world of art, within which he carefully observes the system, the codes, the standards and the unsaid.

Spectacle and consumption are two essential issues that the artist addresses with derision and sarcasm. His multifaceted approach allows
him to portray the young artist who must face a complex environment where it is difficult to find a place.

While reflecting on the status and role of this artist, Raphaël Denis explores the different stages of his career: finding a gallery, wooing collectors, entering the market, asserting a personality. He points out stereotypes to better reflect a system where cult and vanity often outweigh idea and forms.
