Skoya Assemat-Tessandier

Born in 1986 - France


biography under completion

“I don't have time". These were the first words Skoya said when he woke up from a two day coma after a brain trauma. In addition to the 52 stitches going across his skull, he entered in a race. A race with time.

Skoya lived the past ten years, fast, at high pace, learning and gaining life experiences along the way. He dropped out of San Francisco Art Institute to join Central Saint Martins, which he left to experience living in Tokyo. He traveled back to the west with the Trans-Siberian railways. He studied Printmaking at SVA in New York, before living in Amsterdam for a couple years. In Paris, his birth town, Skoya was invited at the Cité des Arts artistic residential program and a laureate of Licra’s Jean Pierre-Bloch price.

Skoya’s work has been shown in New York, Tokyo, Amsterdam and Paris.

He is now living in Lisbon, Portugal, where his studio and Art gallery, The Switch, is located.
