Charles VILLENEUVE

watercolor

Charles Villeneuve (Nantes - 1971) learned the craftsmanship of carpenter, then moved to the creation of furniture, decoration and interior architecture. A graduate of Ecole Boulle before becoming an architect, he was awarded the Grand Prix d'Architecture of the Académie des Beaux-Arts (former Prix de Rome) in 1997.
In 2000, he became resident at the Casa de Velázquez (Academy of France in Madrid) and decided to settle in Spain.
Sketcher and traveler for many years, Charles lives and works in Madrid where he divides his time between painting, design and architecture.
His graphic work is now present in important collections including, recently, that of the MEAM (Museu Europeu d'Art Modern) in Barcelona.
