Born in 1948 and a graduate of sculpture at the School of Fine Arts in Rouen in the studio of René LELEU, this «”young artist of 69 years” as he likes to define himself, has had exhibitions in all of the major Parisian salons and won prestigious national awards.

His bronzes and marble from Carrara are in demand by the big international collectors, major exhibitions and museums. 

Michel BASSOMPIERRE excels in the study of drawing and shapes. His animals, bears, horses, elephants or gorillas, very softly, allow themselves to be caressed by light. The artist likes to play with shadows to give volume and definition to his work. For him, freedom is first mastering anatomical and technical constraints and, after fifty years of « work and study his work has matured. “I may have been born with a pencil in hand, I was not a musician, I was not an accountant, or anything, I was sculptor…” The sculpture is the materialization of a dream. The dream to give life to something that was in his head ».

Michel BASSOMPIERRE exhibits in galleries in Paris, Lyon, Dinard, Geneva, Brussels, Courchevel, La Baule, Arcachon, Megève and St Tropez..

Michel BASSOMPIERRE was the guest of the Museum François POMPON in Saulieu (France) in 2015 for his bears and in 2016 for his gorillas.
