Biography

Arghaël was born in Paris in 1974. He joined the School of Journalism ISCPA and then decided to go to the United States. Passionate about the human body, he discovered anatomy while studying physiotherapy in Miami. Back in Europe, Arghaël turned to image, editing and special effects when he joined the Duboi Company. He then became a truquiste, then an editor, which he was for more than ten years. He worked for producer Claudie Ossard and then as a director for major luxury brands such as Cartier, Dior or L'Oréal. At the same time, he decided to take drawing courses at the School of Fine Arts of Paris, where he was a pupil of Gérard Venturelli.

Arghaël has always been fascinated by the human body. His career in editing and advertising allowed him to work with magnified and highlighted bodies. Drawing made him come back to a more primary form of flesh. He uses charcoal, to purify as much as possible the features and the silhouettes that he depicts. The bodies are naked and stripped of all pageantry .
Man plays a main role in the artist's creation who questions himself about the mystery of existence. His work is deeply carnal.

Arghaël exhibited his creations for the first time in 2016, at the Loo & Lou Gallery in Paris. The same year, he was selected to participate in numerous exhibitions in the United States by Art Share in Los Angelos.
