Who is Philippe Pastor?

Philippe Pastor was born in Monaco in 1961. This autodidactic artist has followed an atypical path and has already exhibited in different locations all around the world. It is particularly the 52nd and 53rd Venice Biennale that has marked a major turning-point in his career.

What about his work?

Even though his inspiration comes from a lot of different topics, his work as an artist focuses on a main theme: nature…as well as the impact of mankind on it.

As a matter of fact, Pastor uses different natural material, such as pigments, combining soils, plants of all kinds and minerals for his work.

Through his paintings, the artist wants his audience to be confronted to environmental destruction and to highlight the responsibility and guilt of mankind in this destruction.
Ultimately, he wants to show his own vision of life.

Philippe Pastor has already exhibited his work in some of the biggest cities in the world: London, Nairobi, Paris, St-Tropez, Venice, etc.

In 2013, his participation at Azul Tierra in Barcelona and at Miami River Art Faire in Miami has not gone unnoticed.

New exhibitions will take place in 2014 since Pastor is already expected in Monaco, Casablanca, Sofia and New-York.

2015 will certainly mark his consecration, where he will exhibit at the Expo Milano 2015 (Universal Exposition).
