Matthieu Stein, sculptor Artist
Matthieu Stein has had a passion for drawing, painting and sculpture since childhood.
Since his entry into the profession, his work as a teacher has allowed him to exercise his passion through art classes and transmit it to young students. Students research and imitate artists as different as Kandinsky, Miró, Dubuffet, Britto, or Giacometti, and the art exhibitions follow one another.
Having always practiced the creation of objects from materials as diverse as wood, clay, and metal, it is finally with the latter that he currently realizes most of his sculptures.
(Through the window of my imagination…)
Ask him where his inspiration comes from, and he will answer that he feels affected by exacerbated pareidolia. Where some people can see shapes in a cloud, Matthieu Stein can see them in any everyday object. A tool from the past will not be put away but will have a second life as a hieroglyph in a fresco or an obelisk; a rusty nail will not be thrown away and will end its life as a branch of bonzaï; a motorcycle chain will have a well-deserved rest as a Rodin’s thinker.
What better way to discover his universe than to see his works?
