| Artist : Valentin Capony
Valentin Capony was born in Lyon in 1990. In 2008 he began his studies at the Ecole Supérieure d’Art et de Design in Saint-Etienne, France, from where he will graduate from the DNAP in 2011. In 2012 he left for China on a bilateral exchange to study at the Great Scool of Fine Arts in Nanjing. This exchange will allow him, among other things, to learn about engraving and philosophy as much as Chinese graphics. In 2013 he resumed his studies at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels with an engraving option in Thomas Amerlynck’s studio where he obtained his Master 2. He is currently working between France and Belgium.
In 2017, he entered the Academia Belgica and received the first Komask Prize for Young European Engraving.
