Philippe Achermann

Artwork for sale

L'oeil ouvert - Editions d'artiste - Estampes


Philippe Achermann was born in the South of France, and came to Paris for studying Japanese. He leaves Paris to settle down in Japan in 1994 for five years, and creates his own woodcuts, as small as matches boxes. Back in France, he continues his discovery of wood engravings at Beaux Arts de Paris School. He realises bigger etchings playing with supports. With a certain tast for simplicity and sobriety, he chooses his own paper, exported from Japan and China to give a natural way for his artworks. Till now, his works are monochromes as well as inspired by animal world, by daily life "clichés", vanities, etc.
