Biography — read more

Born in 1991, lives and works in Paris.

Clément Denis, two first names for a patronym… There are things like this that you can’t control.

Having a double first name for a patronym seems to be the type of things that will make your life original.

From his childhood spent between Noirmoutier and the Loire Valley, he has learnt a crucial lesson : everything has to be organized in a  rigorous and elegant way, both in the human relationships and in the finalization of the vision which presides over any creative gesture. Convinced of this philosophy, he pursues a training at l’Ecole Pivaut and Les Ateliers de Sèvres. Student at the Fine Arts School of Paris (ENSBA PARIS), he initiates a reflexion on materiality, and already shows up a deep interest on themes such as exile and stigmas.

After various exhibitions,  including a participation at YIA Art Fair Brussels and a collective exhibition at Chenaux Gallery, this fearless dreamer sets up L’Officine, an artistic and pluridisciplinary collective and organizes cultural events and litterary salons in Paris and elsewhere.

His next challenge : creating a multisensorial exhibition in which his paintings will not only be wtached but also smelt, hence his long term collaboration with the perfumers Christophe Laudamiel and Ugo Charron.
