Philippe Weisbecker

Senegal Born in: 1942
Born in 1942 in Senegal, Philippe Weisbecker studied interior design in Paris. By 1968 he moved to New York. First working as a draftsman in an architectural firm, he started a career as an illustrator at the age of 30. His work has been published in major american publications such as the New York Times, Time magazine and The New Yorker among others. In the late 90's he shifted gradually from commissioned work to his own original production which he is now showing in galeries worldwide. Moving back to France in 2006, he is now sharing his time between Paris and Barcelona.

In essence, Weisbecker's art consist of depicting elements of our daily life untouched by the sometime devastating effects of fashion's changing mood. These range from tools to appliances, from industrial buildings to public housing, greenhouses...

The opposite of spectacular, Philippe Weisbecker's work proposes a return to the primal sens of things. His technical means are simple (drawing), as well as his message. For the artist, the important thing is to represent things that speak to him through their obviousness. He creates a kind of catalogue, an inventory of the things he sees. Like Perec in literature, Philippe Weisbecker wants to draw attention to the ordinary, the known, the "infraordinary", the things we don't see anymore because we see them every day.
