French artist Xavier Veilhan, who has held solo exhibitions at the Centre Georges Pompidou and Palace of Versailles, has been causing a sensation around the globe since 2000.
He recently paid a visit to Korea for his first solo exhibition here. He is presenting the Mobile series, depicting the world-renowned architect Le Corbuisier, and the new nude figures. He says that these is a close relation between nude figures and the trends of the time period as the way we perceive and present our bodies change reflect the changes in society.
His sculptures, created through the intricate process of 3D modeling and laser cutting, demonstrate the principles of functionalism and minimalism. They are characterized by the geometric lines and mechanical elements that seem very natural at the same time.
With the sounds of threshers, grains pile up one by one though they work manually without any machines, the people are full of joy.
Join us on The INNERview to meet the talented Xavier Veilhan, a master of sculpture, painting and videography, and learn about his artworks and life story.
