Born in 1964 - France
Philippe Buil is a French artist living in Saint-Étienne, france. He creates unique bronze and steel works. Growing up in a family of artists, the choice to become a sculptor came naturally to him.
Bernard Boscher, an art critic from Cambridge Art Expertise, defines Philippe Buil as an engineer / sculptor who gives birth in his studio to strange or classical, but revisited forms.
Philippe Buil created a series of sculptures obtaining an effect by hand hammering the heated metal. He develops the technique of the facettes that allows him to cut the bronze in sheets and build forms and volumes.
Philippe Buil has developed a process that he calls "metal tears", consisting of melting bronze and steel. Drop after drop, he builds the shapes he imagines that look like ethereal lace. The alchemy of these techniques allows him associations that give birth to unique works.
