Philippe Grimaud's work is hard not to spot. He offers work that is bright, contemporary and colourful. Always with an edge. In his own words:
"I conceive a work of art as an idea, a feeling, and not as method or process. My work is personal. For me the most important thing is capturing that idea, because without an idea there is no image."
