Eric Michel studied visual arts and music at a very young age using the Martenot method. Initially focused on classical music, then rock and underground, he became interested in painting and sculpture at the end of the eighties. He has had many shows in Japan and participated in the Kawasaki Contemporary Art Biennial in 2003. Since 2004, he has exhibited in France, as well as London, New York, Miami, Shanghai and San Francisco.
Eric Michel's work on light – in particular his paintings saturated with pure pigments, his videos and his fluorescent installations – is part of a tradition that seeks the immaterial, in keeping with artists like Yves Klein, James Turrell and Dan Flavin.
