Jean-Paul Douziech

French sculptor

Jean-Paul Douziech, was drawn to art at an early age. He gained his diploma at the Ecole Nationale d’Art et Dessin in Rue Madame in Paris, where he focussed mainly on painting and decoration. From there he moved rapidly towards sculpture.

The predominant figures in his repertoire are animals, chosen by the artist  more for the endless variety of their absurd forms than for their noble structure. He attempts to re-transcribe their form by reinventing a language  that corresponds with the materials he chooses (bronze, resin, composite materials…). He creates the expression and character of the animals, but incorporating a divergence that refers to man through the animal in the style of La Fontaine.
