Charles Leval / national

Levalet developed a series of characters, based on photographs or self-portraits, that are displayed on the streets of Paris. Since 2013, he has began to host xhibition in galleries and participate in international events.

Presentation

Born in 1988 in Epinal, Levalet grew up in Guadeloupe, a region where he came into contact with urban culture, then the visual arts. He continued his study in visual art at the Beaux-Arts in Strasbourg after his return. Although he is equally passionate about theater, the audio-visual sector, photography, sculpting and painting, he finally decided to specialize and focus on visual Arts.

Biography

Born in 1988 in Epinal, Levalet grew up in Guadeloupe, a region where he came into contact with urban culture, then the visual arts. He continued his study in visual art at the Beaux-Arts in Strasbourg after his return. Although he is equally passionate about theater, the audio-visual sector, photography, sculpting and painting, he finally decided to specialize and focus on visual Arts.

The work of Levalet is above all a work of drawing and installation. He stages his characters drawn in Indian ink in the public space, in a game of visual and semantic dialogue with the present environment. The characters interact with the architecture and unfold in situations often bordering on the absurd.
