Fabien Verschaere offers a world inhabited by hybrid and invented creatures and monsters—the product of his unbridled imagination. Drawing from the circus, fairy tales, comic strips as well as his own fantasy world, his inspiration manifests itself in a large organized chaos where sex, death, the limit between normality and madness are addressed. Fabien Verschaere lives and works in Paris. A graduate of the École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts in Paris in 2000, he his represented by Galerie Enrico Navarra in Paris. He received a Dena Foundation Award in 2000, and his work was presented at the Centre culturel ­français in Turin (En outre, 2001), the Centre de création contemporaine in Tours (No Idea, 2002), the Palais de Tokyo in Paris (Notre histoire, 2006). He participated in 2009 in two ­important group ­exhibitions: “La Force de l’Art 02” at the Grand Palais and “Vraoum” at La Maison Rouge, both in Paris.
