Biography

Born in June 1972 in Blanc Mesnil, France Christoff Baron divides his time between Marseilles, Strasbourg (France) and Beirut (Lebanon).

He uses for his work scaffolding boards. For his artistic work, he follows the tracks left on the boards by builders or supermarket employees. The work finds its essence in the contrast between industry and art, rough and painted, anonymity and signature, randomness and control.

His exhibitions are inspired by the work of writers and filmakers like Shakespeare, Sydnet Lumet, Dostoïevski and Buzzati. His interest in iconography leads him to work increasingly for many churches, followed by others in the UK, Hungary and New York. He is also a great illustrator and writer.
