  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Graduated from the Beaux-Arts de Paris with first class honors, it was during his studies that Christophe Cartier worked as a journalist-reporter-photographer for the daily and weekly press, before devoting himself fully to painting from 1985 For more than 30 years, alongside his pictorial work, he pursues photographic work and produces long series on the night, the landscape, and also documents his daily life and his personal life. It was during his first exhibition in 2013 at the Detais gallery “It was a Very Good Year” that he made, for the first time, a passage, a junction, between his own photographic corpus and his black and white drawing. , allowing the first to be contaminated by the second with an organic, invasive and obsessive touch.

Christophe Cartier

France Born in: 1961

Christopher Cartier lives and works in Paris where he graduated from the National Superior School of Beaux-Arts, with a "very good" rating. After being a journalist and press photographer for daily and weekly newspapers, he has focused on his artistic practise since 1985.

Through various mediums as painting, photography and drawing, he examines the plastic problematic about the original, the double and the copy.

Today his work puts ahead the relation between the painted images and the photographs. It is a reflexion about the practise of painting at a time of digital production. Co-founder, in 1999 of the website dedicated to the topicality of art happening, he runs the editorial line as well as the artists interviews.

At the beginning of the 2000's, he combined the position of curator and artist for many exhibitions: Kommerz, Magda Danysz Gallery, and AVRIL.EXE, in Paris in 2003, or the Medina Contemporary Art meetings in Tunis in 2003.

He often collaborated with the poet Jacques Norigeon and published in 1991 a portfolio of serigraphs, Linard Edition, in Strasbourg, and Double vue (1997) and A voir (1998), The Ours Edition in the Tour d'Aigues. He published in 2011 a novel "Rêves ou c'est la mort qui vient", Edition, as well as a photo novel in collaboration with Gisèle Didi, "D'une main peindre…" Edition.

Christophe Cartier is also a teacher: He teaches painting and watercolor techniques and animates a brainstorming workshop about the forms and colors at the "Arcades", Research, Artistic Creation, and Teaching Workshop in Issy-les- Moulinaux.
