BIO

Baptiste Charneux born in 1991, he is French artist living and working between Prague and Paris. He graduated in 2016 from the National Fine Arts Academy in Caen. His artistic practice essentially is engaged in the field of ceramics. Appreciative of the many ways of treating and modeling clay, and enchanted by its various characteristics, he relishes its great power to induce voluntary aphasia, stimulating the senses, especially the sense of touch. His works were exhibited in the Centre for Contemporary Art FUTURA, Prague (CZ), in La Serre, Saint-Etienne (FR), in the Szara Kamienica Gallery in Krakow (PL) or even in Kunsthalle Bratislava (SK). He also participated in a prestigious residency program at Moly-Sabata in France in 2018 and he was nominated as finalist of Jindřich Chalupecký Award 2019 in Czech Republic.
