Philippe Berry is a French sculptor. He was born in Paris in 1956 where he still lives and works.
He studied at ESAF Penninghen, a French drawing school.
He worked first as a graphic illustrator for different textile houses and then as a model maker. After that he worked as an artistic director in different advertising agencies. From 1980-1984 he created posters for the cinema and stage sets. In 1984 he devoted himself entirely to his art.
In 1997 he exhibited in the Beaubourg Gallery and in Château Notre-Dame-Des-Fleurs in Vence.
He created sculptures for institutional and private orders like for the cinema Pathe in Marseille, in the Parc Paysager Des Docks in Saint Ouen and for the French embassy in Zimbabwe.
Through his works, Philippe wants to take us back to our childhood with balloons, teddy bears, Indians and cowboy figurines, snowmen and animals.
His favorite material for the sculptures is bronze. This material allows him to pursue his research on volumes and colors.
He took the inspiration from the antiquity period but succeeds to break the antiquity’s cold side by adding colors to his works.
