Biography

Joel Giraud was born in 1961 in Etampes. He graduated from the Ecole nationale supérieure des arts appliqués et des métiers d'art in 1983. He was Philippe Lejeune's student at the Etampes School and has been appointed official painter of the Army.

He is particularly interested in painting, and he produces excellent compositions, playing with shapes, rhythms and colorful universes, where he places the human body thanks to his mastery of the living model. In addition to easel painting, he also paints murals for public commissions.

Trained at the Louvre Museum workshops in modeling, he perfected his technique in a sculpture workshop, and then produced sculpture for shows, theater, and film sets. His own sculpture often refers to the human body. His abstract shapes and volumes are present in his sculptures and in his paintings.

Joel Giraud teaches in the sculpture section of the visual arts workshop of the city of Etampes and is also a plastic arts teacher in various schools.
