RICHARD TEXIER’S BIOGRAPHY
In 1989, the French government commissioned Texier to create a series of tapestries on the theme of the 1789 Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the French Revolution. The tapestries were exhibited at the Opéra Bastille, La Grande Arche de la Défense, the National Assembly of France, the International Tapestry Museum in Aubusson, France, the European Parliament and the Musée du Luxembourg in Paris.
On 18 October, Richard Texier ("Pantheo Vortex" and "Angel Bear", one of the few contemporary artists to have an entire issue of the magazine Art Press dedicated to him), has revealed a series of three scarves in a limited edition of 100 pieces, entitled "ECLIPTICA", "UMBRA TERRA" and "THEORIA SACRA".
Texier's most recent works include Chaosmos 2009, Pantheo Vortex 2011, and Elastogénèse 2013.
