Originally from the Côte Niçoise, Philippe Gauberti draws from his Mediterranean childhood, his intense and solar colors, this insolent light which floods his artworks. Creative and curious from an early age, sensitive to theatre, the visual arts, and culinary arts, his future seems to be moving towards an artistic career.
A traumatic event changed this life trajectory.
Captivated by this freedom that he will never cease to cherish, he then refuses to join the School of Arts which reaches out to him, preferring the adventure of life which will lead him to a career as an accomplished businessman. The passion for art caught up with him, he first became a collector and used to frequent severals artists. He reassembles dislocated materials to restore them to another life. In 1999, in parallel with his professional activity, Philippe Gauberti began studying object design. Metal, particularly mirror-polished stainless steel, quickly became obvious to him. A bond develops between them. It caresses the stainless steel as much as it twists it. Duality is his universe and he loves the one that exists between the cold rigidity of metal and its supple warmth obtained by his work of transformation. For four years, he relentlessly followed intensive training with a master craftsman in boiler making, polishing and foundry, who taught him the secrets of metalworking. Skill no longer being an obstacle to his dream, he then began to create his own artistic universe. The polished stainless steel to become a mirror then imposes itself on him as obvious. Who do I see? Who am I ? The double “I” settles in and does not leave it
