Michel Hasson

Trained in the techniques and knowledge of photography, Michel began his career in 1975 as a photographer and graphic designer for many hotel companies. Although based in the Ile-de-France region, his occupation led him to travel to all corners of the globe. Also, in 2008, he took the decision to curb his movements by specialising in a brand new concept, laser cutting, which he will use to create various creative media – cards, books, bookmarks etc. – and paper cutout works. As a jack-of-all-trades artist, he started to exhibit his original creations in various salons and shops in the region, which led him to stop his commercial career to focus all his attention on the development of his artistic production. In this way, since 2017, Michel has been working on laser cutting at the same time to produce his paper cutouts and stencil painting. To produce his resolutely colourful singular compositions, Michel gets inspiration from an image that he takes himself or creates especially for the execution of his project. His subjects are varied and deal with landscapes, the plant and animal world as well as kinetic art. With the help of his graphic palette associated with various textures and carefully selected paper shades, the artist cuts, superimposes and juxtaposes the many levels which, once assembled, give birth to a poetic, modern and dynamic visual work.
