Pierre Laniau, who was born in Paris, manages to successfully combine two careers working both as a visual artist and a concert musician. Since 1988, his videos, photos and paintings have been exploring the question of mankind’s transformation. In 2012, he exhibited his “Galerie of Princes" at Galerie RX in Paris and was featured on the cover of Challenges magazine and published in L’Express. He was invited to the Salon de Montrouge and then exhibited his series "Oh la belle vie!" at Foundation SAM Art Projects in Paris and at YIA art fair in Lille. In 2013, he put on a projection of his photos at the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Besançon; this exhibition gave rise to a catalogue, "Brisures... 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013”. In 2014, he showed his work at Galerie RX again, as well as in a group show at Vincent Sator gallery, and then at the Box in Bourges, before taking part in the Busan Biennale in Korea. In 2015, his video Le son des collections was shown at the Maeght Foundation in Saint-Paul-de-Vence. He was also among the nominees, chosen by collector Sandra Mulliez, for the Opline Prize. In 2016, Picasso museum director Laurent Le Bon will show his “Galerie des princes” at Palais de Tokyo, during Choices the gallery week-end. He will also be part of the group show titled “Yes I can” at Walter Benjamin museum in Perpignan. His works are to be found in numerous private collections such as Marcel Brient or Bernard Magrez. His work was reviewed by newspapers and magazines such as Libération, Artpress and Le Quotidien de l’Art.
