Profile Type: artist
Originally from France, Sebastien Courty grew up surrounded by handcraft and art at an early age. He attended the National Art School of Paris in sculpture and painting. Based in New York City since 2012, Courty graduated from the renowned “Fashion Institute of Technology” in Textile and Surface Design. Emphasising the "MADE IN USA" the artist collaborates and works for diverse projects throughout the US embellishing both private and public spaces. Sebastien Courty quickly connected “Art” with “Design” and created a concept embodying both, using materials and components reflecting a demand, requirement and budget. The artist can work with rare and prestigious materials such as gemstones or precious metals but also recycled and durable materials such as aluminium or polyurethane threads. He founded his own Textile Art Studio back in 2018. Throughout his career, Courty worked and learned from masters in the industry. With his decorative approach and concept, Courty designs hand woven panels and free standing sculptures for interior designers, private collectors as well as foundations and governmental institutions. Courty exhibited his work all around the world, including Paris, New York, Beijing and Dubai. His collection of textile wall hangings called “Totem - A Wall’s Jewelry” has been acclaimed internationally. Fascinated by the diversity of craftsmanship and versatility textiles offer, Sebastien Courty’s art is in principle a decorative art approach. The play of texture, material and colour permits him to reinvent his craft through traditional and ancient techniques. He aspires to move the viewers by creating an emotion, a feeling through his creations. Textiles transcend dimensions where design encounters art in a prospective muse. Not limited to fibers his work encompasses any materials that allow hand woven methods inter alia to invent contemporary textile art. Opening people to a different way of thinking, each textile panel becomes a reflection of the country or region represented. It is an invitation to travel and discover parts of the world one has yet to explore.
