Charles Leval, said Levalet, was born in 1988 in Epinal but grew up in Guadeloupe. That’s when he became in contact with urban culture and visual arts. He studied visual arts in Strasbourg but his career only took off in 2012, when he started to work in Paris. He’s since then participated in numerous exhibitions and solo shows, as well as several international meetings. His work is focused on design and installation. He stages his characters in a game of visual and semantic dialogue with the present environment. Those characters interact with the architecture and are often found in absurd situations.
