David Aiu Servan-Schreiber's portrait

David Aiu Servan-Schreiber is a French visual artist working in London and Paris. He is represented by MTArt Agency. His artworks have been exhibited internationally (New-York, London, Paris...) in many prestigious spaces such as Sotheby’s and Rosewood London, Art Paris, etc.

Most if not all artists are influenced by their environment, the times they live in, when creating. But David Aiu Servan-Schreiber’s work is actually all about our environment, our times, our planet and the great dangers it is / we are facing.

Being conscious of where and how we live is at the very core of David’s life, thoughts, preoccupations and, therefore, art. Each of his artworks is not just influenced by but rather entirely dedicated to addressing the many issues our planet is confronted with. Every aspect of his work, whether the materials used, his creative process, the presence or absence of color, the use of fire, gold, wood, paint, mesh, resin, etc. is a vector of his constant awareness of the environmental threats we are struggling with. With each element bearing its own alchemical and compelling symbolism, these are the core materials that create a dialogue between us and his art.

Works
His series Planets, which has gathered much attention since its inception, offers a magnetic contemplation amidst the hustle and bustle of our modern day lives.

The common theme that runs through the planet series is the eerie beauty of [planets in general and] planet Earth [in particular,] when seen from a distance. Throughout the series, textures, colors and background change but the effect is the same when watching them : a well needed moment to stop and reflect.

The new (already in demand) series, called Microcosm, acts almost as a counterpoint to the Planets series. This Earth is now looking deserted and scorched. A place where life seems to have disappeared. Its aesthetic approach to void, emptiness, to a planet where all form of life has disappeared is troubling, yet settling as a constant reminder that we are still capable of preventing the destruction of our own environment.
