ABOUT

A JOURNEY WITH


London based french artist, David Deroo, LIVED AND WORKED IN VARIOUS PLACES AROUND THE WORLD INCLUDING AUSTRALIA, LOS ANGELES AND NOW LONDON. In his most recent works, David had been working with a specific technic using collage and painting, but previously worked with a large variety of media including drawing, painting, installation, CAD generated and glass work.

Born in 1988 and raised in the industrial heartlands of Northern France. Art always been a way to escape the morose atmosphere for the artist, since the slow death of the steel and the mine industry back at the end of the 20th century. Fascinated by the material's physical properties involved and skills in crystal making in Lorraine, Baccarat and Lalique being the most famous, David naturally pursued in parallel of his architecture master degree, a Glass Design and Engineering degree.

His architectural background and extensive travel provides the artist with a diverse source of inspiration, and permitted to develop high technical skills in diverse fields. The importance of light and texture would be the thread in all his work. Every piece is developed as a project, from sketches to realization, but also following a strong concept. The study and the reinterpretation of urban analysis in The Urban Shape serie being the most evident .

Zidoun & Bossuyt gallery set his first solo exhibition "One equals infinity" in Luxembourg, June 2014.
