Artists from La Ciotat
Bring art into your company.
Our aim: to make art accessible!
Art Investissement is pleased to announce a new partnership with La Ciotat Entreprendre, a dynamic association that brings together more than 300 Ciotadian businesses.
Stimulate emotion in your daily life with works of art that will make your workplace as unique as you are!
That's the challenge we're taking on by launching.
The concept is simple:
We display selected works of art free of charge and under our responsibility for a period of 2 months, so that you can share them with your employees, partners and customers.
At the end of this period, it's up to you to continue the adventure by renting, leasing or simply purchasing.
You can also return the work, but you should be aware that you will be making a lot of people unhappy.
Philippe Le Guillou
This Breton is fascinated by stones, menhirs and dolmens, which stimulate his imagination and inspiration. His father, often away at sea, left him his workbench and tools. At the age of 17, he tackled an oak log with a chisel and a drill - his first sculpture. At 24, in the magical forest of Brocéliande, he carved tortuous stumps. After many long journeys, he settled in La Cadière d'Azur.
It was through his many travels that Philippe found his inspiration. In the USA, he discovered the art totems of the native Indians, and in Morocco, the craftsmen of Essaouira encouraged him as an artist.
The art of sculpture is present everywhere: Sri Lankan temples, Polynesian tikis, Madagascan mahafale tombs and Maori pirogues.
The masks of African art have deeply moved him with their emotional and mystical charge. Ever since he was a child, he has observed the sky, the geometry of stars and galaxies as well as molecules, a question of scale. For him, the best artist is Nature, and the wind-sculpted rocks of Antarctica, the rock formations of Tassili or a simple pool of dried mud offer as much inspiration as the sea.
He admires artists such as Andy Goldsworthy, Matta, Eduardo Chillida, Archipenko, Constantin Brancusi, Marx Ernst, César, Antony Gormley, Armand..., and the masters of contemporary Aboriginal art.
He is passionate about all materials, each with its own specificity.

Collage is "art in movement that challenges painting", as Aragon put it.
For me, it's the result of an irrepressible impulse and a vital drive that draws on my personal mythology.
Tearing, crumpling, gluing and folding means writing with images, painting without drawing, inventing a world, 'sticking' to the world.
As a self-taught artist, I've always collected images, using old newspapers, magazines and books from which I draw my models.
I always find the need to compose with 4 elements:
posters or magazine pages that have been torn up, cut up and broken up
graphic backgrounds from the 50s and 60s, with their geometric shapes, colour harmonies and universal aestheticism
women (from the 30s to the 70s)
