Claude Lévêque

Born in Nevers (France) in 1953, Claude Lévêque lives and works in Montreuil (Paris).
Since 1984, his work is exhibited in France and all around the world. He represented France in 2009 Venise Biennale
(curator : Christian Bernard, director of the MAMCO in Geneva).
Lévêque counts as one the most wellknown and successful French artist on the international contemporary art scene.
