Who is Thomas Fouque?

Thomas Fouque was born in 1986 in Bastia. He studied at the National School of Decorative Arts, following which he learned the trade of intaglio printer.
He works in Paris as an engraver and intaglio printer. These two areas of professional training have equipped him to create totally personal, beautifully finished works. Intaglio printing requires minute attention from the artist, And all the more so from this engraver, who creates small-sized prints. The quality of his etchings is remarkable and his modulation of shadow and light interesting, describing life in its continuity through the phases of germination, blooming, maturity and decadence. His work is focused on the “Metamorphosis”.
