The path that led Yannick Duhamel to become a sculptor-plastic artist is unique. Initially, it was as a musician and composer that Duhamel experienced his first artistic ascent and success. First in jazz, and on guitar, which allowed him to cross paths with Ray Charles by ensuring his first part in France. Then in the folk, the song, the song, the writing and later the realization, first with Trema / Sony music, then Universal Music, materialized by two gold discs and numerous tours during fifteen years, to across France, Europe, Quebec and as far as Australia. So the loss of inspiration; the legacy of a painfully aborted 5th album from Universal Music. And finally the click, Duhamel rediscovering himself through sculpture. Inspiration rediscovered through matter, form, light and darkness.

Self-taught, as he was in music, looking for new materials, mixing the arts, finding his own "voice" in sculpture to express what there is in him and sums it up, he then invents the Duotone process. Vinyl Art. Today, through his sculptures consisting mainly of vinyl records borrowed from an elegant vintage nostalgia, Duhamel pays homage to the golden age of the record.

He owes his current success to having known how to "shift the lines between the arts" by making his sculptures in particular connected portraits, both visual and sound. As Joe Strummer, frontman of The Clash, said, "Everyone has to realize that they don't have to hang on to the past if they want to have any future." Duhamel is the best example.
