Philippe SCRIVE (1927)
Philippe Scrive is a Franco-Canadian sculptor living in France, in Fontenay-aux-Roses since 1958. Scrive was born on August 17, 1927 in Ville-Marie, Témiscamingue, Quebec, Canada.
He studied at the Beaux-arts de Québec from 1944 to 1946.
Philippe Scrive comes from the Témiscamingue region, in western Quebec. The forest, the work of loggers, the transport of logs marked his childhood. The totemic verticality which is often found in his work expresses the memory of this past.
He continued at the National School of Fine Arts in Paris until 1952 and settled permanently in Paris.
He won the Monument to Resistance Students and Vikings Prizes in 1952.
In 1968 Scrive obtained a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts which enabled him to make study trips to Greece, Spain and the United States. In 1972 he won the prize for the Young Sculpture and in 1975 got prize and realization of the monumental fountain of Montreuil sous-bois, France.
His encounters with Brancusi, Richard Neutra, Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright influenced his artistic career.
The portico that he erected in front of the Dunkirk Museum of Contemporary Art testifies to this desire to make a lasting contribution to the artistic gesture within the city.
In 2008 he won the Academy of Fine Arts prize from the Simone and Cino del Duca Foundation.
