My work takes root in explorations of traditional handcrafts. It combines meticulous manipulations of various materials with playful impressions of symbols and three-dimensional optical illusions.
Using layering, perspective lines, displays of figurative or abstract motifs, I build sculptures and pictures that evoke fictional and mystical storytelling.

HERMÈS – CRAFTING TIME
2016 / 22 June – 15 July
The “Crafting Time” exhibition will be held in Paris from June 22nd to July 15th 2016, in the Espace Horloger at 24, Faubourg Saint-Honoré.
Hermès Crafting Time exhibtion celebrates horlogy.
The talent of artist Guillaume Airiaud is the subject of much fascination for Hermes, which is an incredible feat considering he is only 32. It is no surprise, then, that the storied fashion house would call upon his expertise for the “Crafting Time” exhibition. It not only unveiled three new exceptional timepieces, but also reinterpreted five key areas that apply to Hermes timepieces. Each one is translated into a series of visually-intriguing sculptures.
