BioPhilippe was born in Meaux, France; he is graduated from college through the Art and Graphic Design School EDTA Sornas in Paris in 1995.
Initially, his work was more figurative during his life in Paris (1993-1995) and then in Switzerland (1996-2000).
Later he moved to Aix-en-Provence, where his work became increasingly abstract, light, bold, and colorful.
In 2012, he ultimately transitioned into playful, unpredictable abstraction creating an emotionally charged explosion of colorful shapes and grids against white space.
Influenced by living and working in New York since 2016, he keeps transforming his style in exciting and innovative ways.
He is more and more considering the missing spiritual pieces of our material world: the non-human world (objects, animals) is one of them. He developed the concept of Geographic Abstraction to translate this invisible world through unconscious interconnections. read more

It calls upon an emotional framework as a construct to bring the viewer as a participant in this experience.
The blurry boundary between perception and experience always inspired me: I am interested in the randomness crossovers in the senses (Synaesthesia) through art by imaging abstract visuals – similar to data maps – based on the subconscious and a drifting creative process.
My work recently engages also with human nature and any type of environment or element: it includes objects, plants, trees, or animals. We totally ignore and even hide the impact of their inwardness, their mind, and their subjective capacity on the planet we are sharing. read more
