Born in 1976 in Toulouse, Guillaume Pelloux is a former archivist. Today, he is a collagist artist, living and working in Paris.
He has cultivated a fascination for European royal dynasties; a fascination that makes him revisit, distort and reinvent official portraits of these figures by collage on canvas. By this mean, the artist tries to rescue them from oblivion and give them new lives and legends.
