Interview: Christophe Pillault
Luca Curci
talks with Christophe Pillault, winner of the Honorable Mention during the ITSLIQUID International Contest – 7th edition.

Christophe Pillault is a truly extraordinary artist. Born in 1982 to an Iranian mother and a French father, Christophe Pillault is autistic, a condition that entails difficulties speaking and moving around. Yet, the Loiret-based artist has had the Midas touch since his youngest age. He held his first exhibition in Paris the tender age of 13, was listed at 15, and since then, has continuously exhibited his work all over the world, grabbing several awards in the process. Christophe Pillault expresses himself through painting as his hands reveal the immeasurable richness of his imagination. A great observer of the world around him, a born traveller who shows limitless curiosity for the world and others, Christophe Pillault is a virtuoso of painting, particularly when he plays with light, colors and brushstrokes, creating artworks filled with movement where ethereal silhouettes lead us into a marvellous ballet rhythmed by strong emotions. These characters establish a veritable link with spectators and with the world, creating a powerful inner dialogue with the artist whose love for life translates into colors.

Movement and colors.
