Iannis Pledel (b. France) lives and works in Paris.

This artistʼs recent solo institutional exhibitions in France include the Art Center of Saint Mandé, the Art Center of Chambéry, the Cale 2 Créateurs of Nantes, the Art Center of Rennes-Betton.

Internationally he was exhibited in several Lumas Galleries and in China at the Xi’an Museum.

He was selected at the Salon dʼAutomne of Paris, exhibited in the Contemporary Art Show during FIAC and participated in exhibitions in galleries in Paris since 2012.

His background – Art school École de l’image Gobelins, studies at the Sorbonne and a PhD at Sciences-Po Aix, learning different pictorial techniques ranging from painting to photography – gave him a plural heritage.

He is also distinguished by collaborations, notably with Colette Paris or Estée Lauder, and with other artists for creations such as the album covers of Génération Goldman, Electro Deluxe, Quintette Syntonia or more recently Acquin.
