Philippe Halaburda was born in France in 1972. He received his diploma in 1995, Superior Degree Graphic Art School from the EDTA Sornas School, Paris. Having lived and exhibited from Paris (France) to Zurich and Berne (Switzerland), Philippe Halaburda now divides his time between a studio in Aix-en-Provcence and his graphic art director activity in Paris.
His work is in private collections in the United States, France, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Canada, The Netherlands and China. His work attempts to reflect the ongoing exploration of the abstract in human nature, moving between the accidental and the consciously structured, juxtaposing spontaneous or geometric forms. He strives for a sense of order with feelings and emotions. One layer influences the next, one color brings the next, one shape creates the next. An ambiguous notion may often appear in the work, leaving the viewer to be engaged in decoding the meaning of the work. He’s very concerned with the effects of change, growth and loss inherent in his own creation process, taking the chance of losing the whole, but often rewarded by an o chance inspired image of repeated and duplicated colors and shapes. That’s why his work is very similar with maps or satellite aerial views. The surfaces and the strokes must awaken attention in the viewer and inspire imagination form one’s own experiences. Philippe Halaburda lives and works in the South of France.
