French artist born in Mozambique in 1970, Philippe Vignal lived his childhood in Africa and kept its strength and beauty. Graphic designer, this singular and self-taught artist, moved to Morocco 10 years ago. Deep and raw scars remain and impregnate his contrasting artworks, vibrating power and sensuality of black and white. A visual shock, a true meeting, a realistic face-to-face… that attracts and challenges at same time. Nudes, hyper-realistic faces are his inspiration, scarification and piercing of the Omo Valley’s tribes, from southern Ethiopia, punctuate and hone his artworks.
