Hubert Le Gall‘s work is a bold combination of sophisticated and playful. Inspired by the likes of Salvador Dali, Jean Cocteau, the Surrealists, and Max Ernst, Le Gall introduces humor and beauty into everyday life.
Self-taught as an artist and sculptor before delving into a design, uses classic materials to create pieces that inspire laughter and enchantment, while being meticulously crafted. A fixed star on the international art furniture design scene, he exhibits and sells his work globally. Hubert Le Gall‘s work is a world between art and design, filled with animals, flowers and of his own world and fantasy.
“My dream was to be an architect, but I was expected to be a lawyer. I was 25 when I realized I wasn’t living my life and I had to find out what I wanted to do.”
As a designer, Hubert Le Gall is self-taught and has been learning along the way. Indeed, he is hesitant even to give himself the label of a designer: “I am just creating because of my desire to create,” he says about his contemporary art.
