Franck Bragigand

Franck Bragigand (1971)

Lives in Amsterdam. Works in Amsterdam.

For more than twenty years, Franck Bragigand has been developing a body of work constisting in ‘painting subjects’, which results in a collection of works gathered under the title : Restoration of the daily life. The subjects chosen by the artist vary from artistic items, edition, found objects, book/library, people’s private belongings, buildings, roads, monuments, urban settings... with the underlying theme that the formal idea of restoration is extended to a critical exploration of human production. Paint has thus become a means in which to underline the dialogue between the subjects and their specific context.
