David Décamp

David Décamp (born 1970) has spent part of his life in the Jura, as a forest worker. David is a self-taught artist, close to Art Brut and nourished with a kind of surrealist dark humor. An accident at work led Décamp to dive into artistic practice – curative in th first place. The materials he uses often have an autobiographical meaning: wood, lead, bone as in the work of Joseph Beuys. By exorcising his own life, Décamp develops a universal message: the vital need to change the poisoned relationship between Man and Nature.
