Nicolas Moussette

“My art is inspired by tradition, as much for the style as for the use of materials (terracotta, enamel). However, my creations become contemporary through the mixing of new materials (like resin or fibre), the will to establish with the public a multidimensional sensory experience and my own questioning of landscape, more imaginary than real, and surely more politically committed than purely aesthetic

Nicolas Moussette was born in 1972 into a family of French and Polish artists.  It is only after long and various studies (history, languages, international relations, environmental management) and a rich life of work experiences (from tourist guide or sales manager in Paris to photography studio manager in New York, humanitarian project manager in Bangladesh, reserve army officer in Kosovo, waste management data collector in London, flight manager in Africa…) that Nicolas realised his vocation is in art.
