Lou-Brice Léonard was born in Versailles, France in 1980 and now lives and works in Paris.
Lou-Brice sculpts fragmented female forms created initially in clay and then in cement and glass. As a teenager, Lou-Brice spent much of his time visiting the national museums in Paris to observe and recreate ancient sculptures. This allowed him to develop a very precise modelling technique. Subsequently, as a student, he came into contact with the work of contemporary artists such as Giuseppe Penone, which sparked his desire to research the materials themselves. Clay in particular fascinates him as he looks for auto formed features such as those found in minerals in their natural state.
In parallel to his work in the sculpting field, he studied cinema and then aesthetic art at the Sorbonne University in Paris. Since 1998 he has directed several short films, including "Remains", 2005 and "Every day is a small life", 2014. Both were released worldwide and received many awards (70 festivals in 25 countries).
