Corinne Chauvet was born in 1973. She studied art history and visual arts in France, Spain and England, where she discovered the work of the sculptor Elisabeth Frinks (1933 -1993), which was a real revelation for her. Later, her encounter with the works of Georges Jeanclos (1933 – 1997) and then those of Osman Sow (1935 – 2016) encouraged her to make sculpture her profession, promising herself «to make a living from it within five years…». 

His boldness paid off! Success and recognition soon followed.  She was welcomed as an artist in residence in Shigiraki (Japan) and Léon (Spain) and several galleries exhibited her work in France (Paris, Lourmarin, Riquewhir and now Cordes sur Ciel), Monaco and abroad (Belgium, England, Luxembourg, etc.). The Musée de Médecine in Brussels has commissioned several sculptures from her

In 2019, she installed a monumental sculpture in front of the Musée Ingres in Montauban in homage to the sculptor Antoine Bourdelle. In April 202, «Furidami», a monumental sculpture previously installed at the Cap d’Ail museum a stone’s throw from Monaco, moved to the town of Cordes sur Ciel, on Place du Tilleul at the foot of the Barbacane Tower.

Her artistic exploration draws on emotion, human gentleness and laughter. 

On her first trip to Burma, the sculptor was fascinated by the looks and smiles on the faces of people in the street.  The Buddhist monks in particular captivated her and inspired her characters. They bear witness to the best that man has to offer, and represent the positive side that each and every one of us tries to cultivate. 








Working the clay contributes to the feeling of life and energy that the artist captures like photographic snapshots. The viewer is quickly seduced by the almost infectious laughter.  

«Creating gentle, serene and joyful emotions, 
is what I prefer to offer to the eyes my sculptures».
