Xavier Deshoulières

Born in 1969 in Poitiers

Xavier Deshoulières lives and works in Paris and Palma de Mallorca .

After graduating in 1995 from École des arts décoratifs in Strasbourg, Xavier Deshoulières moves to Cologne for three years in the former studio of Donald Judd across the Rhine.

In 2001, he meets Virgil Voldere, and begins a long collaboration with the gallery, multiplying performances, exhibitions and international fairs in London, Paris, Miami, Mexico City or New York City.

In 2004, he works and exhibits in Beirut, creating numerous paintings on «architectural scars» of the martyred city.

He will then continue this work with some American cities, wich particular urban planning, presents, contrasts and paradoxes in their mutation.

From 2008 he begins to paint impenetrable plant architectures on large formats, and obtained, with one of them, the price Marin in 2010.

Xavier Deshoulières’ paintings are part of museums and private collection such as MOMA in New York, Living tresure Museum of Tokyo, LVMH or the Malca collection and commissioned works such as portraits of Nelson Mandela, Jacques Chirac or Javier Perez de Cuellar.
