Upon completion of his degree from the Ecole Estienne, University of Arts and Graphic Design in Paris, Nicolas Bernière took courses from Philippe Lejeune at the Ecole d’Etampes. At the same time, he studied under Debort and Fontaine at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts (University of Fine Arts – Paris). After specializing in classical and contemporary Western painting, he completed his training with a focus on Art History at the Ecole du Louvre. Nicolas Bèrniere always works by series, experimenting with different styles and techniques, following his fascination for living forms and their imperfections as well as the organic nature of the material. La Forêt Mobile, was realised in cooperation with Julien Martial and invites all our senses to interaction, in a playful way. Nicolas Bernière is born in Paris in 1970 and works in Paris and Bern.
