SEBASTIEN ROCHE

Sébastien Roche is a French artist born in Lille.
His portraits have featured faceless people consistently since 2010. His primary goal is to trigger the onlooker's imagination.
He was inspired by the 1920s and, particularly, on the “mug shots” of an Australian Police Station. His focus is mainly on body language and the subject's overall posture. His “Sans Visages” (faceless) collection is now well-known all over Europe.

He works in various French and European galleries and he participates with success in many important contemporary art fairs.

Very recently Roche approached a new adventure focusing his creativity on abstract art like a new field of experimentation and freedom.
