Jean-Michel Othoniel's first monograph follows the footsteps of the singular and secretive artist. Making use of the raw beauty of materials, Othoniel is one of the few artists to balance a demanding artistic process with a sensitive and poetic approach. He invites us to discover a world inhabited by dreams and enchantment, but also haunted by suffering and melancholy. The artist gained favor with the public for his Kiosk of the Night-Walkers, which he designed for the entrance of the Palais Royal—Musée du Louvre metro station in Paris. Othoniel has had numerous exhibitions and commissions in both France and abroad.
