Pierre-Francois Grimaldi is an urban archeologist, a collector of lost memories. The vintage advertising posters he uses in his collages are often found during refurbishing works of Paris metro stations. These amalgamated layers of faded papers tell a poetic story of a bygone age and offer a fascinating experience of mid 20th century visual design.
Pierre-Francois Grimaldi (b. 1969) lives and works in Paris. His art is influenced by the Nouveaux Realistes art movement and the search for creative deconstruction. Pierre-Francois Grimaldi is presented by several art galleries in France and in the UK by >french art studio since 2012.
