Philippe Favier

Date of birth : 1957

Country : France

French painter.

From early on, Favier tended to use unusual techniques and formats. His initial work was very small in size, and showed the sharpness and irony of his perception: the invention of imaginary places, countries, and continents, of ideal cities, and islands on an imaginary but meticulous map. Later on his works grew larger and rounder. Painted glass remained a favourite technique, particularly in works produced since 1988 for public spaces.
