Ceiling Mobile by Xavier Veilhan


Ceiling mobile titled 'Le Mobile' by French contemporary artist

Xavier Veilhan's menagerie of ceiling mobiles, crystalline animals and figures have populated the blankness of many a white cube. Drawing on references ranging from classical statuary to Futurism and Op art, Veilhan has been compared to artists such as Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons and perhaps even Alexander Calder. Perhaps it is no coincidence that his studio is located at the rue Fernand Léger in Paris.  We certainly do wish him the same staying power since his wide body of work is truly exceptional.
