Philippe Grimaud is a French artist who lives and works in Nantes.
After graduating from Fine Arts and publishing assistant in an "underground" magazine, he obtained a rich career as a draftsman and designer in Paris in the biggest advertising agencies.
Philippe Grimaud chose to leave the capital by settling in Nantes to devote himself to more personal works.
Philippe Grimaud sublimates the techniques previously used in his profession, the digital. This becomes his preferred medium, which allows him to deepen his universe without constraint or limit.
He develops a universe mixing pop references, allusions to B series and the 60's, 70's until the Italian renaissance.
Faithful to his Warholian influences, Roy Lichenstein, Tom Wesselmann, James Rosenquist, Allan Jones, and rock and roll, Philippe Grimaud offers a demanding work, very graphic, in a very contemporary aesthetic interpretation.
« I conceive a work of art as an idea, a feeling, and not as an approach or a technique which in my opinion is personal, because for me the most important thing is the result and without an idea there is no image. »
« I designed this with an unwedged mind. It's mixes comics pop art and rock and roll from the 60's and 70's when anything could go. »
