Franck BRAGIGAND

Brazigand, who defines himself as a “realistic painter”, works based on the concept of “restoring everyday life” by critically interpreting modern society from everyday items and garbage. Rather than creating new things, they regenerate by painting things that have already existed in society and have been forgotten or no longer used. In 2012, he started his own project “Artist in residence” where he stayed in a depopulated village in France and worked on the works in schools and public facilities while working with the residents. From 2016 to 2019, the project is being implemented in 47 villages in Pay de Bitch.
