Philippe HIQUILY


Philippe Hiquily (1952-2013) was a French sculptor born in Paris. He became a metal sculptor at the beginning of the 50’s. He frquented the studios ot other masters such as Jean Tinguely and Germaine Richier while he was still studying at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts of Paris.
His first exhibition was in 1955 in a Parisian gallery. A few years after, in 1959, his works were exhibited in New York where he met all the important names of American art such as Léo Castelli, Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Jasper Jones… At this point, his works have been acquired by important museums including the MOMA and the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Musée Beaubourg and the Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris, but also by private collectors.
Focused on the search of balance, his works are a combination of flat but large volumes, and filiform parts. The characterization of his work is an omnipresent erotism with some figures borrowed from nature.
