Biography / Levalet

The work of French artist Charles Leval, also known as Levalet, is first and foremost a body of work consisting of outdoor installations and drawings the merging of these two, to be exact. Selected works can be found in Levalet’s collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/3 in 2014.

Levalet was born in 1988 in the rural French town of Epinal. He grew up in Guadeloupe, where he first got in touch with the concept of art, displayed in the open. After coming back to Europe, he pursued visual art studies in Strasbourg and gets briefly interested in video art, before starting with the style that characterises his work until today. He stages human bodies, meticulously drawn with Chinese ink in the public space. These characters interact with the architecture they are put upon, often resulting in almost absurd situations.
