Jacques Dufrane

Born in: 1950


Jacques Dufrane was born in 1947 in a modest working class family, far from the world of art and coming from a disadvantaged background due to the economic difficulties of the postwar period.
Passionate about art but working as a founder in an industrial milieu, Jacques Dufrane drew his inspiration from this experience, in terms of techniques and patterns.

While working in a business which worked with lost wax, Jacques Dufrane saw here an opportunity to discover the different processes and stages of sculpting through this technique which is as old as the world. In addition to his skills as a designer, his career as a founder gave him all the practical knowledge for the proper development of this art form.

Always very close to the world of art, he decided one year before his retirement in 1991, to dedicate solely to art. His assembled sculptures are primarily autobiographical, they constantly remind us of his work as a founder and his life in his hometown which was highly industrialized before its decline.
