Nicolas Deshayes

Born 1983, lives and works in London.

Nicolas Deshayes’ sculptures use materials such as annodised aluminum and vacuum formed plastic to embrace the glossy aesthetics of 21st century design.  Despite their emphasis on slick industrial surfaces and physicality, Deshayes' works maintain a human presence in the form of glutinously rich, bodily allusions, engaging with the materials in ways that distort the ordinary.
