About

Hadrien Durand-Baïssas

Biography

Hadrien Durand-Baïssas (HDB) is a French-born artist living and working in New York City. Trained in the visual arts, graphic design, and art history, HDB attended l’Atelier de Sèvres before working as an art director for LVMH’s 24 Sèvres, McIntosh, SFR, and BNP Paribas. In 2012, he began to exhibit original artworks at different venues in his hometown of Paris. HDB was soon recognized for his incredibly detailed compositions, combining mythology, esoteric symbolism, and dreamscapes. His hand-drawn artworks were showcased in over twenty exhibitions, including at the Espace Dali and Soho Arts Club.
HDB has most recently pivoted towards experimenting with new mediums that merge the worlds of design and technology. Currently developing a series of interactive light installations, he is focused on creating multi-sensory and immersive experiences that can be shared with the public. These new projects are imbued with a sense of wonder and nostalgia for a not-too-distant past when technology and innovation were intimately linked to humanity’s more utopian ideals. As an emerging figure in the contemporary surrealist art scene, HDB invites viewers to step outside their everyday reality and into the worlds of fantasy and imagination.
Challenging dualistic abstractions is a central theme in HDB’s work. As audience members become active participants in the creative experience, boundaries between observer and the observed dissolve. What was once separation becomes unity. Friction turns to alignment. Harmonic balance is restored.
