Biography
Stéphane Halleux was born in 1972 in Belgium. He studied at the Saint-Luc institute in Liege, then began his career as a colorist and modeler in the animation sector. He is extremely attracted by sculpture and gets the idea to assemble varied items to create a crazy universe. A reflection of his idols like Jules Verne and Tim Burton, Stéphane Halleux uses humor in his work. As an artist, he claims the right to laugh, and therefore he sculpts and denounces the absurdity of life in a cynical manner. Stéphane Halleux works with inanimate objects and gives them a life of their own, through sculptures. He tries to recreate human feelings, stage neurotic characters, in which the spectator can find a part of himself. His favorite materials are leather, wood and metal. Stéphane Halleux is now a sculptor who is famous worldwide. Tim Johnson, from Dream Works Entertainment said this about him "His sculptures all seem to have come out of an animated universe. I find the quality of their story just incredible. He tells you a rich and complex story-simply through their very own existence". In 2014, the short movie "Mr. Hublot" stages his sculptures and makes him win the Oscar for the best animated short movie.
