Gaspard Maîtrepierre

Born in 1992

Gaspard Maîtrepierre lives and works around Paris. A self-taught artist, he draws from a vast repertoire of myths and theories dealing with the origins of humanity and ancestral knowledge to compose a bestiary where Mayan kings encounter strange reptilian gods, Guantanamo prisoners form a round of puppets and mask-wearing animals reveal their true nature to humans through their reflection in a broken mirror.
