The men are born free and equal and it is the last time when they are him.

Cyril Le Van was born in Seine-Saint-Denis in 1970, he lives and works in Toulouse today.
Stemming from an artistic environment, Cyril Le Van practises the drawing and the painting before being interested in the urban space. Brought up in a Parisian suburb, he is daily confronted with the sociocultural disparities, entailing his artistic approach to question the violence of relationships between individuals and society.

His realistic works take back the current social codes, common objects of consumption, such as food retailers, Lavomatics and designer clothes. His sculptures are installations with real scale, made from photos printed on cover, assembled by sewing or fasten.
