Born in Paris in 1962, Christophe Streichenberger is a French contemporary artist widely known and recognized for his paintings. After his studies, he worked ten years for the Banque de l’Image, dedicating himself exclusively to painting in 1993. His work combines two aesthetic approaches that could be assumed irreconcilable. One is conceptual, appropriating some of the codes of Pop Art, advertising and fashion photography, geometric figures, empty sidereal, cool colors; the other is expressive and organic, a style for which Francis Bacon, among others, was famous.
