Matthieu Venot

1979 born in Brest (F). He lives and works in Brest.

Matthieu Venot started taking pictures in 2009, but it was not until the early part of 2014 that he left his job as a sound engineer and began working full-time as a artist. Venot is a self-taught photographer who turns architectural details of his hometown into cleanly composed minimalist images that stand out from a deep blue sky. He plays with windows, bannisters, balconies, and similar elements of the urban environment, combining them with the pallid blue of the sky to create pure and original compositions. Excluding the Breton greyness, the photographer transforms the town into pastel colored images. An important part of his style is that he only photographs by great weather conditions. With several shows in different cities of Europe he convinced his audience and also won prices for his architectural photographic artworks. The Foxx gallery presents him in the exhibition „French Pop“ for the first time in Switzerland.
