François Monnet :
Born 1951 in France.
I lived and worked in several European countries including Norway, Denmark, Poland, Scotland and outside of Europe, Turkey.
I express myself through theater, poetry, painting,sculpture, and photography.
Rather than seeing these art forms as separate, I always try to bring them together. In moving from one to the other they enrich each other.
I have created and directed numerous projects in this spirit, in purpose-designed areas, public festivals, private happenings, and unusual places.
