Born in 1952 in Chantilly, Alain Kurylo studied at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués et des Métiers de l’Art that he completed in the 1970s. He is a student of the sculptor Volti and the designer Serge Mouille.

For nearly fifteen years, the human figure has occupied a predominant place in his work. Expressive silhouettes with pure lines are declined: rough, cracked, torn, broken. They are articulated in a wide variety of materials: stainless steel, wood, rusty steel, clay...

Kurylo works in particular with the Raku technique, which consists of smoking the piece in wood shavings or sawdust, in order to give this cracked aspect to his work.

«Simple lines on steel surfaces, large flat cuts in rusty sheet metal, the brutal and rough aspect of clay, the juxtaposition or opposition of materials, everything is a pretext for experimentation.»
