Michel Bouvet

Born in 1955 in Tunis. Lives and works in Paris.

After studies at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris (painting department), Michel Bouvet very quickly turned to posters. His work as a poster designer and graphic artist was mainly for cultural events (theatre, opera, music, dance, museums, festivals), institutional affairs (local authorities, public institutions), or publishers. As such he has had more than seventy one-man shows in thirty countries across the world. He has received many awards from most of the great international poster biennials. He has also been frequently invited to them as a jury member. In France he was awarded the Grand Prix de l’Affiche Culturelle at the Bibliothèque nationale de France in 1987 and in 1992. He teaches at the ESAG / Penninghen, Paris, and is a member of the International Graphic Alliance. He is exhibition curator for the Mois du graphisme (Month of Graphics) at Échirolles, France.
