Mime

Born: 1988

Hometown: Tours

Based in: Paris

 

Mime, is a French artist living in Paris. After studying art market design
and contemporary art, he decides to try his hand at collage. Self-taught, his new hobby soon
becomes a veritable obsession. Mime draws his resources from his travels, and his numerous
visits to second-hand libraries. He browses, sources, skims, cuts, clips, trims, hides and glues
visages and busts from all time periods, all eras. Mime’s work represents his mood, or
experiences that have left their mark on him in some way. His chief inspirations: Egyptian
aesthetics, antiquity, architecture both past and present, and his contemporary human
experiences. The subjects of his collages all originate from second-hand books. There is -as of
now- no digital intervention on any his works.
