Artist biography

(° 1981, Paris)

Lives and works in Paris.

After studying photography and multimedia at Université Paul-Valéry Montpellier and Université Paris 8, Nicolas Dhervillers made a name for himself after an historic commission from the Centre Pompidou in Metz. Inspired by cinematic, theatrical and pictorial writing, Nicolas Dhervillers's approach decompartmentalizes the photographic medium.
