Antoine Langenieux-Villard French, b. 1991


"I think of painting as a mode of construction. I am constantly experimenting with techniques of assemblage to question the surface itself, as a place of tension and temporality. It is a place to build, either through the use of collage, sewing, rivets, or using abrasive techniques."

Antoine Langenieux-Villard (b.1991, France) undertakes a constant investigation of the object of paintng itself. Through a number of series he explores and stresses the importance of the surface, as a place to build. He graduated from Central Saint Martins, London, in 2017 with a First Class BA(Hons) in Fine Art Paintng. ALV is recipient of the Queen's Scolarship Award, the Phoebe Llewelyn Smith Award in 2016 and the Kate Barton Painting Award in 2017. He was also the recipient of the Clyde & Co Art Award 2017-2018.

Currently ALV's is a part of an internationally touring museum show, Mul$layer Vision, from 2020 to 2023, from the Wilhelm Morgner Museum, Soest, Germany, the Vasarely Museum, Budapest, and the Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens Museum in Cornwall, UK. Recent group exhibitions include, Au fond c'est flou, at Adaventura, Brussels, Belgium.
