Pierre-Louis Graizon

Mask maker

Originally from France, Graizon set up his studio in Brussels after studying there. He also makes sculptures, but currently focuses on creating masks, using hat-making techniques and with felt as his main material. “During a workshop by Belgian hat designer Elvis Pompilio, I realised that this material is the perfect medium for my artistic research, because it allows me to express myself in the most natural way.” Graizon’s creations are potential identities, stories that may have happened or could happen. “My work revolves around my theorical research about the construction of identity and specifically the contrast between a ‘social self’ and a ‘natural self’. Much concrete inspiration comes from my personal life and the things I witness, struggles as well as accomplishments.”
