Born in 1988 in Paris, he lives and works in Paris
Pierre Seinturier develops an original practice, blending drawing, painting, 1960s America, and modern countryside outings. His paintings are characterized by an extreme tension: Is a murder about to be committed, or has the crime just been perpetrated, in an abandoned house in the forest? His Thriller looking narrative images are made of a good deal of self-derision and lots of sources of inspiration: Raymond Pettibon, Walker Evans as well as the New Yorker cartoons, among others.
Graduated from Ecole des Arts Déco in Paris, his personal exhibitions include the Espace Jacques Villeglé in Saint Gration (2021), the French Institute in New York (2017), the Musée d’art moderne et contemporain de Saint -Etienne (2016), the Module Pierre Bergé-YSL of the Palais de Tokyo (2013) and the 12th Biennale de Lyon, as well as group exhibitions at the Monnaie de Paris, or at the museum of Tourcoing (2019). He has won numerous awards: Colas Foundation (2020), Partners of the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Saint-Etienne (2015), Salon de Montrouge (2013).
