Joel Cazaux

Joel Cazaux combines the spontaneity of childhood and technical rigor to go to the heart of things in his etchings, linocuts and silkscreen prints. His creations are inspired by fine art and ancient civilizations; they explore the worlds of Africa, Egypt and the Aztecs, and create a universe, which combines human, animal and plant in a dreamlike atmosphere and loaded with symbolism. Born in 1940 in Dinard, France, Cazaux is proving himself to be a painter, engraver, sculptor, screen printer.... Joël Cazaux entered the Center of Graphic Arts Corvisart of Paris in 1955.
