  • About the artwork

    Les Z’Animaux Musiciens sont le travail d’une année de collaboration entre l’artiste Michel Audiard et l’ancien président directeur général d’Universal Music France, Pascal Nègre.

    Au début de l’histoire, ces Z’Animaux sont une commande de Pascal Nègre pour sa propriété tourangelle. Il souhaite avoir des animaux musiciens au nombre de 61 représentant son année de naissance. Ces Z’Animaux Musiciens constituent ainsi un orchestre symphonique mozartien.

    De plus, chacun des animaux représentés sont ceux existant dans sa propriété, comme son Golden Retriever nommé Scarface (n°60), son âne nommé Tarzan (n°34) ou encore son cheval nommé Novak (n°33).

    Toute l’année, Michel Audiard a donc proposé des croquis que Pascal Nègre a validés en choisissant la couleur de chaque animal. Ensuite dans son atelier de Rochecorbon, Michel Audiard est passé à la création : du dessin papier à l’ordinateur, à la découpe au laser dans des plaques d’inox laquées d’une résine époxy au four.

Michel Audiard

Born in: 1951


Emergent Artist

World-renowned artist based in Tours, Michel Audiard was born is paris in 1951. Fresh out of "les beaux-arts" (school of fine arts), he starts painting portraits in Montparnasse, and sculpts various materials.

In 1978, Michel Audiard stops painting to devote himself to sculpting. The lost-wax casting technique is to him the nicest approach to making a sculpture, as every sculptor's dream is to finalize his work in bronze. He goes on sculpting, designing furniture as well as jewelry, and in 1995, he releases his first hand crafted fountain pen "stylo sculpture".
In 2005, he creates his first "passage", a figurative cut-out see-through metal plate, highlighting the invisible "the transparency of the statuary". This is how, over the years, following his fertile imagination, MA has successfully designed unique artwork pieces, as well as pieces in limited editions that have been shipped worldwide.
