Ugo Schildge Biography

Ugo Schildge has developed a new approach on wood panel with materials including but not limited to wood strips, natural pigments, plaster, which questions the traditional form of an artwork, blurring the border between painting and sculpture, canvas and media, control and freedom, and creating a perpetual come and go between figurative and abstract, conscious and unconscious, technique and illusion.

After trained by Giuseppe Penone and became the assistant of Bernard Moninot, Schildge worked independently and quickly developed a reflection on the articulation between image and movement through his exploration with cogwheel. In his most recent practices, the cogwheels are transformed into 'brushworks' to explore new themes in nature and humanity through various techniques.

Schildge graduated from The École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 2014. His work has been exhibited at public institutions including the GoodPlanet Foundation, Paris (permanent display); Invisible Dog Art Center, New York (2016); Espace Pierre Cardin, Paris (2014); École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts, Paris (2010), etc.

Ugo Schildge's work has also been included in the collection of the GoodPlanet Foundation, Paris, France as well as private collections across Europe, America, and Asia.
