About Erwan Soyer
erwan-soyer.tumblr.com - After studying Literature, Art and Cinema at the Paris Diderot University and Graphic design at l’École supérieure Estienne, Erwan Soyer works as an Artistic director, Illustrator and Visual artist since 2011, in Montpellier, South of France. His plastic work (large format) focuses on the concept of landscape, inspired by satellite imagery, making a reflection on Biology and Geology, indeed, the paper, derived from vegetable kingdom takes the appearance of rock from the mineral kingdom, in an area beyond the earthly limits. His collages are made without manual intervention by IT tools, from recovered materials, pages and illustrations from old books, cut with a scalpel and assembled with bookbinding techniques. The subject of the books used have a direct relationship with the Geological and Biological worlds and brings meaning and message in a different perspective. The small-format collages are exploring multiple issues such as politics, history, mythology, utopia, science-fiction… made in the spirit of the European Surrealist collages from the early 20th century.
