Born in 1969 in France. Lives and works in Paris.

Raphaël de Villers began with a regular practice of drawing and painting, to move towards volume creations made ​​from paper mache and recycled objects. Research to make his works perennial led him to ceramics. Today working ceramics provides him with the freedom to produce artworks that on the one hand inscribe themselves in history and on the other hand, enlarge his exploratio of coulours through their vibrations, transformations and even ‘accidents de parcours’. De Villers gives form to a real or fantasmic univers in the heart of a lush nature inhabited by real or monstruous animals that remind us of medieval iconography.
