Humanizing the urban experience
Matteo Messervy is a French designer, an artist, a sculpturer, a choreographer of light. It is his prime material through which places, objects, artworks come into life, changing and enhancing people’s perception and awareness of their environment, making it a vibrant and colorful haven to live in.
Born in France, raised in central America and Spain, he studied Design at the renowned École Supérieure d‘Arts Graphiques Penninghen in Paris. His career followed an equally international path reflected in lighting design projects worldwide, including collaborations with renowned star architects like Zaha Hadid, Ron Arad and Daniel libeskind.
The artist is known for his Monumental installation in the Hotel de Ville, Paris city hall, employing light projections, sculpture, and sound. He designed significant projects for architectural landmarks like the The Centre George Pompidou, National Museum of Modern Art, and the S4 Terminal at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris.
Light knows no boundaries, and he makes sure it stays that way.
Recently Messervy opened his studio in Asia. He is currently working on large-scale projects in India and Thailand. Well-being is the matrix from which all his work originates, conveying a deep emotional resonance. Known for his large-scale installations, the human is always at the center of his work. Light is used as a medium, a messenger through which his vision reaches people. “Every city can return to it’s splendour by creating a renewed vision of the achievements of it’s inhabitants. The urban experience is enhanced when there is a reference to the past, while facing the future with optimism”.
For the opening of YenakArt Villa he will sign the lightning of the facade.
