Yvan Mercier, known as Meyv, is an ironworker of sculptor. Passionate about volumes and the work of metals, he married the sculpture and forge in his achievements.
Self -taught forge
From childhood Yvan discovered the work of his hands, at the age of 6 he already had a workbench and his own tools, working on the subjects offered to him.
After studying decorator on glass, he abandons this material which he finds too cold and fragile to turn to metal. He then learned the forge in self -taught constantly experimenting with techniques and becomes an ironworker of art by specializing in a very sharp style, the French art deco style of 1920.
The sculptural side of this forge passionate him and for more than 15 years he will create a collection of interior furniture, will become a restaurateur with collectors and for historical heritage and consultant as an expert for different large sales rooms in France .
Towards sculptural creation
Because life is not a big straight line and is not seen in a single chapter, he will make the decision to make a big turn in his career for the passion that has always animated him during all these years to work His hands: volume, sculpture.
Yvan then studies self -taught sculpture. Anatomy, composition of a face, body details, movement. His style will quickly focus on a figurative sculpture inspired by sculptors of ancient Greece, because nothing is more beautiful than nature.
A happy accident
With his ironworker know-how of art, he will experiment in parallel with melting techniques until the day when, accidentally, he discovers a way of pouring the very particular bronze giving an aspect of erosion and millennial sculpture.
And since hunting is more important than the treasure, experimentation is a very important value in its work and always pushes it to discover new techniques, allowing Yvan to marry bronze, silver, gold, and the precious stones in his sculptures.
