Born in 1982 à Paris (France)
Lives and works in Saint-Cloud (near Paris France).
Mathieu Cherkit graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts de Nantes Métropole and completed his studies at Hochshule für Grafik und Buchkunst in Leipzig (Germany).
His work disregards the subject by focussing exclusively on his family’s house
in Saint-Cloud so as to better examine the notions of representation, distortion and colour in painting. Presented to the public at the Salon de Montrouge (2010), Mathieu Cherkit’s works have since then been exhibited at the Palais
de Tokyo (Paris), Musée d’art et d’histoire de Saint-Cloud (Musée des Avelines), and are in the collections of the Fond national d’art contemporain, the Fondation Salomon and the Fondation Colas.
He was shortlisted for the second edition of the Jean-Francois Prat Prize (2013) and the Sciences-Po Paris contemporary art prize (2010).
He is represented by Galerie Jean Brolly (Paris).
