Fragment of the face of Aphrodite.

"This face was sculpted in clay and then moulded before being cast in bronze with my "archaeological" casting technique. Yellow brown patina. The result of the bronze casting is totally random and makes the sculpture unique. The depth and sensitivity emanate from it, as well as a very strong notion of temporality, the illusion of having discovered this sculpture buried in the ground more than two thousand years ago. A question is asked; what will our contemporary civilization leave behind us?" - Meyv

All the steps of the realization, from the modelling in low relief to the casting of bronze and the silver plating were carried out by the artist himself.

Yvan Mercier, aka Meyv, is a skilled metalwork sculptor. Captivated by volumes and metalwork, he combines sculpture and forging in his productions.

A passionate, self-taught artist

Meyv's sculptural vision is inspired by Ancient Greece’s heritage of figurative sculpture. His metalwork draws on over 15 years of experience, in particular his knowledge of 1920s Art Deco styles.

Meyv constantly studies volume in the art of sculpture and metal science. He recently succeeded in recreating the technique for gold's molecular migration in an alloy, a procedure previously used by the Incas.

Art meets craftsmanship

A passionate metalwork sculptor, Meyv expresses himself in everyday life by shaping steel, copper, bronze, silver and gold. Through an artisanal approach, he combines sculpture and metalwork to bring his imagination to life.

His research has led him to forge various metals and even to work with clay. Using his fingertips or a hammer and anvil, he manipulates and moves his materials to give them their shape.
