Born in 1961 - France
Christopher Cartier lives and works in Paris where he graduated from the National Superior School of Beaux-Arts, with a "very good" rating. After being a journalist and press photographer for daily and weekly newspapers, he has focused on his artistic practise since 1985.
Through various mediums as painting, photography and drawing, he examines the plastic problematic about the original, the double and the copy.
Today his work puts ahead the relation between the painted images and the photographs. It is a reflexion about the practise of painting at a time of digital production. Co-founder, in 1999 of the website visuelimage.com dedicated to the topicality of art happening, he runs the editorial line as well as the artists interviews.
At the beginning of the 2000's, he combined the position of curator and artist for many exhibitions: Kommerz to.com, Magda Danysz Gallery, and AVRIL.EXE, in Paris in 2003, or the Medina Contemporary Art meetings in Tunis in 2003.
He often collaborated with the poet Jacques Norigeon and published in 1991 a portfolio of serigraphs, Linard Edition, in Strasbourg, and Double vue (1997) and A voir (1998), The Ours Edition in the Tour d'Aigues. He published in 2011 a novel "Rêves ou c’est la mort qui vient", manuscrit.com Edition, as well as a photo novel in collaboration with Gisèle Didi, "D’une main peindre…” visuelimage.com Edition.
Christophe Cartier is also a teacher: He teaches painting and watercolor techniques and animates a brainstorming workshop about the forms and colors at the "Arcades", Research, Artistic Creation, and Teaching Workshop in Issy-les- Moulinaux.
