Born in Paris in 1975, Quentin Garel graduated from the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1998 and lived at Casa Velazquez (1998-2000).
His work of sculpture, in bronze, iron, wood or porcelain, is characterized by the creation of a bestiary, sometimes very realistic, sometimes reduced to a state of skeleton. Garel explains: «In recent years, I have developed a sculpture work involving various wood assemblies around the theme of the trophy; proud custom of the man whom I try to divert in favor of the animals of consumption by denouncing the derisory character of this practice. I prolonged theme through the cast iron which gives it a more monumental dimension and put it to the outside. » Excellent draftsman, Garel works on the subjects of his sculptures upstream on paper and completes each of his sculptures exhibitions with a series of sketches and preparatory studies.
