French visual artist born in 1979. Very early on, she was passionate about artistic creation. Nature and the elements (materials, lights, colours, shapes...) have given him a taste for discovery and adventure, this openness of mind to the world defines his current work. Discovering art craftsmanship at her lifelong friend Lyseth’s, together they met Hassan Massoudy and collaborated on the creation of engravings on plaques, starting at the age of 19. The adventure, during long journeys in China in particular, opened up prospects for him towards what is now a matter of course, calligraphy. Noticed by Starter Gallery, in 2015 he will have the opportunity to spend several weeks in residence in one of the most important museums in Chengdu (city of 14 million inhabitants) to exhibit in three museums in Chengdu and test his technique with great international artists such as XuLiaoyuan, Qiu Guangping... Always open to the world, his approach is simple, the daily work allows learning and mastering the movement, which he works hard with his teacher Alexandra Laneve. This is how the "Signs" series was born and is now internationally recognized.
Chris Calvet has always taken care to develop his passion for painting. But his artistic approach does not stop there. Calligraphy also plays an important role in his work. The artist creates scenographies where ink and the sublime symbol of female models blend together. It is easy to feel the influence of China, to which he is very attached.
