About Pierre Fauret

I currently live and work in Toulouse, SW France, the region where I was born in 1963..
Trained as a scientist I practised for some time as a part-time veterinary surgeon.
As a self-taught artist (thanks to all those who helped and guided me), my first works were marble and bronze sculptures of wild animals - my ambition at the time was to produce objects of beauty.
Then my scientific background and a better knowledge of art history drove me to explore the living and artistic worlds more deeply, together with the need to “use” animals to represent various facets of human behaviour.
Thus appeared animal, anatomical and organic figures for which metamorphosis and hybridization are often central themes.
While I like to work with different mediums and materials depending on my creational purpose, wax has come to predominate for me in both sculpture and painting.
I also currently work with artist Luc Laumet, one notable example being our recent Drawing correspondence: 260 drawing exchanged beetween 14 December 2016 and 5 December 2017
