Collection: Nolvenn Le Goff
Of Mexican and French origin, Nolvenn traveled to Barcelona in 2005 to do a Master's in Marketing after completing a Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design and two specialties at the School of Design of the National Institute of Fine Arts of Mexico in Editorial Design, Multimedia and Advertising Creativity. .
In 2010, Nolvenn began his formal journey through the world of art. He questions himself about the role of the artist, the topics that interest him and the way to reflect them in his projects. This year two of them were born based on their environmental concerns: one of a playful nature based on artistic recycling and the Paper Cities. These Paper Towns have been one of his most rewarding projects, both technically, aesthetically and conceptually. The cities win an international contemporary art competition (bARTcelona, 2010), allow him to spend 2 months as an artist in residence at the La Papeterie de Vaux ecomuseum, in France (2012) and participate in the Art Capital art show, in the Grand Palais in Paris. This year it will be part of the Homo Faber Biennale in Venice, organized by the Michelangelo Foundation.
Nolvenn's goal, as an artist and a human, is to inspire positive change in the world. To achieve real change, we have to start with ourselves.
Nolvenn tries to remind us with his latest project that we all have wings, but some decide to amputate them. These wings are full of personal symbolism and allegories: the angel wing represents the values and purity that Nolvenn tries to maintain in his personal life. It goes against the current in a world where individualism and immediacy seem to prevail. Pegasus's wing symbolizes the world of mysticism that serves as a refuge and inspiration. The bird wing represents his union with nature and the freedom that, in his eyes, is synonymous with responsibility.
Nolvenn currently lives in the Dordogne, France, surrounded by forests and lakes. This daily coexistence with nature that he loves so much has inspired new projects, such as Textures or the Montagnes series .
