Valentin Duhamel is interested in the social, economic and historical functions of print and develops a plastic research around the different printing processes. He tinkers with and stages rudimentary, unreliable, fragile, slow and random printing tools to take on industrial productivity: an ode to inefficiency.
Graduated from the Beaux-Arts de Paris in December 2019, he was an instructor at Aurélie Pagès' printmaking workshop for three years.
Today, he is the printer for the Musée des Estampes de la ville de Gravelines, where he teaches printing courses (intaglio) and accompanies artists in residence at the museum.
He is also a free-lance printer, with a particular taste for editions that are off the beaten track.
