About La Petite Histoire

Quebecois artist Paul Duval uses layer upon layer of delicate paper to create these unique and compelling paper mache sculptures. In this new series of expressive table-top pieces, two men are seated on a rock, facing one another arms in motion as if in a deep discussion. They are casually dressed in shorts; one royal blue, one bright yellow. “La petite histoire” means ‘the little story.”

“The representation of the body is the basis of my artistic approach. I sculpt in order to materialize the fantasy world within me.” Paul Duval

He is a member of the Canadian Sculptors Society and of the Conseil de la sculpture du Québec. He studied Monumental Sculpture at Université de Rimouski, casting at Maison des métiers d’art, Québec, and soldering at Cimic, Saint-Georges, Québec. In addition to his full-time work as an artist, Duval is Technical Director, Symposium international de la sculpture, Beauce-Art, in Saint Georges De Beauce, Québec. Duval’s sculptures including commissions are in private and public collections in Canada and France.
