Krystoff ANTIER: Painter and sculptor in Saint-Florent-le-Vieil in Maine-et-Loire (49)
THE COURSE OF KRYSTOFF ANTIER
A self- taught artist, Krystoff Antier has been painting and sculpting since the age of 8, using oil, clay and bronze with equal dexterity. His mastery of technique and his sense of movement constitute the essence of his creative work. He does not simply paint a subject, he reveals it by playing on contrasts, working with the light to create an atmosphere.
This ability to capture an emotion can be discerned in his sculptures of female figures, reproduced from memory. A rapid sketch and clay coils, these are the bases of a sculptural work of art, sometimes weighing several hundred kilos, a combination of serenity and sensuality. Krystoff Antier reveals the beauty of bodies and souls
