Arnaud Nazare-Aga

France Born in: 1965

Born in 1965 in Paris, Arnaud Nazare-Aga has developed a passion for modern sculpture and architecture since his childhood. He constantly visited museums with his parents. He was educated in a Tibetan Buddhist community in Burgundy and later became a trained plasterer-moulder. Arnaud designed and produced many sculpted decorations for Buddhist temples in the West, such as the Temple of the Thousand Buddhas near Autun (France) and Paris. He thus worked on the realization of the 3 monumental sculptures of Buddha inside the temple with artists from Bhutan.

After many different professional experiences in Europe and Asia, he founded the PAJ'Art Studio in January 2011 in Bangkok (Thailand) where he lives. In 2012 Arnaud created a few collections with the collaboration of his ex-wife, under the duo name, Artheline. The collections are known for their fun, brightly colored and voluptuous sculptures Sumo, Hippop'Art, Whale Pop, Goril'Pop and Goddess which bring childlike joy to viewers. In 2015, the Hippop'Art exhibition in the Fullerton district of Singapore, where more than 40 hippos took over the gardens, lobby and quays of the hotel.

Its most important artistic project is to make accessible to the blind the works of art of The Little Prince inspired by the most famous French literary work with a poetic and philosophical meaning. Thanks to touch, the visually impaired are able to “see” his sculptures in a kind of induction into the art world.

The fruits of Arnaud Nazare-Aga's labor were presented in Singapore presented as part of the French cultural festival Voilah! . This exhibition was then set up in Hong Kong where the collection adapted to the visually impaired welcomed 124,000 visitors in 38 days. Then in May 2016, the two exhibitions of The Little Prince were presented in a national museum in South Korea, the Gyeonggi Provincial Museum for nearly 5 months. The sculptures are now on display at the Singapore Philatelic Museum for 10 months from June 7, 2018 until March 2019.

One of his latest works is the Sumo Totem: the 3 different Sumo placed on top of each other. The symbolism is stability and security for the first, open-mindedness for the second and the third, above, represents the adventure of life.

Arnaud recently completed the creation of the B'Pop collection which was previewed in the U-Sathorn Hotel Bangkok before being exhibited at Fullerton Singapore from September of the same year. The B'Pop collection is composed of three models of bears in different positions: Dancing B, Sitting B & Lazy B. Each of them is in 5 sizes and several models.

Arnaud Nazare-Aga's work has been presented in numerous international fairs and galleries in Asia and Europe for 7 years.

His last main exhibition in 2018 was Art Stage Singapore where he presented a 3.4m tall Sumo Totem as a public artwork, AAF Milan and “ Derrière le Petit Prince ” at the Singapore Philatelic Museum.

More recently he exhibited in 2019 at the Venice Art Biennale where he presented a 4.5m high Totem Sumo which is now on display in Brescia. He also currently participates in Art3f contemporary art fairs in Brussels, Paris and Luxembourg.
