Introduction

BIOGRAPHY

 
DIDIER SANCEY
Multidisciplinary artist, architect, teacher, painter, writer.
 
I have practiced several trades, I am a painter since the beginning and I was an architect in private practice until 1992 with Alice Sancey, herself a multidisciplinary artist.
Teacher at the ensaPB (Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de Paris Belleville) until 2014, in several disciplines, architecture, perspective, computer science, plastic arts, video. At the ensaPB I invented and directed the "laboratory of image and color".
In Quebec, I exhibited from 1991 to 2015 in the Riverin-Arlogos gallery of Pierre Riverin, who died in 2015.
 
With Alice Sancey, we work as a team and have won several artistic competitions for stained glass windows in secular and religious buildings, modern or "historical monuments".
We have also realized monumental paintings, and architectural coloring.
We have participated in several collective exhibitions on stained glass.
