Born in Toulouse, France in 1966, Jean Marie Massaud was a child fascinated by science, who dreamt of becoming an inventor. He graduated from ENSCI in Paris in 1990. During his academic years, he found it was the beauty of first intuition that amazed him in the process of invention. He then started to collaborate with Marc Berthier, who had a great influence on him.
While working on urbanism issues with Marc, who made him realize that if he has a past, he must have a future as well, Jean-Marie Massaud discovered the intimate link between design and architecture, relating to similar implications in the creation of our environment and of our life experience.
The world that Jean Marie Massaud idealizes is a place where people feel empathy toward all living things and nature and culture exist together in harmony. His artworks are fueled by his senses and mysterious power, as well as his pursuit of achieving a feeling of being alive.
There is a process of taking on challenges and changing the future in the work that leads to tomorrow.
