Philippe Laferrière is a Visual Artist based in Thessaloniki, Greece.|
Born in 1974 at Toulouse, France, where he studied at the École des Beaux Arts (1992-1995). Furthermore he studied Art History and graduated with a MA in Classical Archaeology at the University of Aix-En-Provence (1995-1999).
The development of a survey about the painting of Macedonian Tombs brought him to Greece in 2000, where for a long time he worked as a conservator of works of art.
Today, he still lives in Thessaloniki and devotes his time to painting and music which is a permanent source of inspiration for is work. Most of his performances were happening with the participation of musicians, dancers and comedians. Improvisation, chaos, abstraction and a living dialogue between consciousness and inconscious gave birth to a semi-abstract painting where nature and human action try to find several issues.
