He lives and works in Pyrénées Orientales and in Hamburg.

Biography

In parallel with his research, which he has been involved in since the early 1990s, Didier Béquillard was Professor of Plastic Arts at the École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Toulouse from 1999 to 2005. He is a professor of plastic arts at the Ecole Supérieure des Beaux Arts de Toulouse, Option “design d’espace” and a visiting professor at the University of Architecture of Cagliari in Sardinia from 2002 to 2006.

Sculptures, engravings, pastels, the simultaneous use of different media immediately indicates Didier Bequillard’s tautological approach. He spatializes a universe where lines and curves are declined, without reservation of territory. He defines a simple figure, identified in order to multiply, sober in order to vary infinitely, closed in order to open up, inhabited in order to be inhabited. — Jackie Ruth Meyer, Albi 1994.
