Iannis Pledel
  • Introduction

In his series Fragments of Desire Iannis Pledel depicts a continuous change. His creations manifest powerful emotions with their various movements and deviations. Just like desire, his work is characterized by constant dynamism, they can be light, they can be dark, often they have an affinity for the unknown.

Iannis Pledel merges painting and photography to create artworks with various levels that each complement and complete one another. This complex multilayered process allows for such a rich variety of interpretation that the works can be likened with and make reference to other art forms, such as cinema or literature. Just like the silhouettes, the viewers gaze upon the work, and its expression, will change.

Painting has been an integral part of Pledel’s life since his childhood. Later he broadened his artistic horizons by learning various printing techniques, such as silver printing and platinum palladium printing. He studied photography, graphic design, as well as epistemology at Sorbonne University in Paris. After receiving his doctorate at the Sciences-Po Aix he returned to his artistic and creative roots and dedicated himself to painting and other art forms. His multidisciplinary approach is a testimony to his multifaceted career and experience.

Today, Pedel is an internationally sought-after artist. He has worked with major magazines and brands, like Colette Paris and Estée Lauder. His art has also been admired in the music industry, as he has created several successful album covers.
