Elisabeth Delacarte met him at the very beginning of his career. Recognizing the talent of a true artist with exceptional potential, she has represented him in her gallery ever since. His works now grace several museums including the Musée des Arts décoratifs in Paris and London’s Victoria and Albert Museum.
New Zealander Mark Brazier-Jones launched his career creating video clip sets for Queen, Duran Duran or David Bowie...for seven years witnessing the destruction of his works as productions ended.
Having grown weary of things ephemeral, he dedicated himself to sculpture, without compromise. He also co-founded the Creative Salvage Group with friends Tom Dixon and Nick Jones, later joined by André Dubreuil.
In 1986, he found his calling: Functional Art. He now painted with his soldering iron and forged beauty on his anvil, sculpting salvaged materials. His first creations or objets d’art were exhibited at the Avant-Scène gallery, the beginning of a relationship that lasts to this day.
A great admirer of Bernini, one of the major artists of the Italian Baroque period, Brazier-Jones draws his sources of inspiration from the imagery of all ages.
An enthusiast of both esotericism and science fiction, he never ceases to extend his surprising creativity though his use of universal symbols.
Combining bronze, crystals, metals and fabrics, he brings to every one of his creations the meticulous care of a whimsical child for whom no dream is unachievable.
