Pierre Marquès in front "Auteur anonyme1" - Photo © Hugo Da Costa

Pierre Marquès (Béziers, France, 1970) has lived in Barcelona since 1998. Since 2007, he has been working on an immense series of paintings entitled “Mon manège à moi”. His work includes paintings, stencils, classical drawings, visual poems, photographs and videos. Today he continues to play with his Kalashnikovs while preparing a retrospective in Barcelona (Centre d’Art Santa Mònica, Generalitat de Catalunya, October 2013) and a show in Paris (Scrawitch - Galerie 6bis). He has just completed a graphic novel, “Tout sera oublié”, in collaboration with Mathias Énard, which was published by Éditions Actes Sud in March 2013. His most recent work is primarily based on historical memory: he has several projects underway, including books, paintings and video installations that will be shown at the Centre d’Art Santa Mónica in Barcelona in 2013.

He held his first exhibition in his hometown in 1987 and his work has since been shown in galleries and museums in Spain, France and Japan. Some highlights include:
