Patrice Warrener enjoys international renown, notably for having created the Chromolithe polychromatic illumination system used to highlight the architectural details of a building, creating brightly-coloured frescoes.
In 2003, he lit up the Porte d'Aix in Marseille, before going on to create displays at Gouda City Hall in the Netherlands and York Cathedral in the UK.
For the 2006 Festival of Lights, he was asked to design a light show for the inside courtyards of the Hôtel de Ville, creating his Traversée Contemplative display and starting his exploration of the Festival's most famous sites. For his 4th contribution to the Festival in 2008, he told the story of the "Visit of the Kings" on the facade of St John's Cathedral. In 2010, the chosen site was the Place des Terreaux, which featured his trademark bright colours and horses galloping around the three facades of the square in his Hommage à Bartholdi, Place à la Fontaine, showcasing the fountain designed by Bartholdi, which was transformed into a shimmering jewel.
