Prestigious schools, an ever-expanding résumé, and meticulous work, this is what you’ll find on the artist Octave Marsal when you look him up.
Still in a gestation period, Marsal experiments with a variety of materials and tools to draw extremely fine and painstakingly accurate details. Unexpected landscapes, mythical and mystical palaces, architectural dreams, post-apocalyptic scenes, real or imagined, the artist loves taking the time he needs in his work. He traces, etches, draws, copies, reproduces, and replicates on copper, pewter, leather, and glass. Dizzying.
