Stéphane Cipre

Stéphane Cipre

Born in Paris in 1968, his family, originating from Nice. Stéphane Cipre moved to the French Riviera at the age of four. His artistic career began in 1997 after studying Fine Arts and Art History. His early works can be described as an academic figuration and rapidly became more and more graphic, now seen in his actual works. Naturally, like a child walking his first steps, Stéphane started integrating writing into his work. For Stéphane, it's a revelation. The words and what they mean, are now one. With righteousness and precision, Stéphane revisits the writing, so that it now forms its subject. His art is amazing, a confusion between the signified and the signifier, which both complement each other and become inseparable.

At the same time, it is "art as a commodity" that inspires the sculptor. Deeply affected in his youth of losing local shops and artisans, Stéphane Cipre, through his art, snubs globalization. Which by nature is intangible and therefore valuable, but once in the hands of the artist, becomes valued as an ordinary consumer product!Whether they are strapped, compressed, sequenced or on transport pallets, the letters ART twist perfectly, a dissonant reality in which everything becomes commercial.A true artist of his generation, Stéphane Cipre works as much on his computer as in his studio—giving birth to his sculptures.Stéphane's work is intercontinental, satisfying several foundations and collectors around the world.
