Born in 1968 in Nantes (FRA), POLO a.k.a. Paul Alexandre Michel Albert Bourieau, studied Art at the Accademie of Nantes before joining the legendeary French Stone Massons Guild; the Compagnons du Tour de France.
It is from working on prestigious projects such as the Musee du Louvres, the American Center in paris and Notre Dame du Haut of Le Corbusier, that he will study and explore the duality between Sculpture and Architecture.
During this Art vagabondage, POLO eventualy reaches the sculptor Mecca: Pietrasanta in 1994. It is where he will hone his skills in sculpture, collaborating with Tuscan artisans and contemporary artists.
This journey is POLO formation as an artist.
And he is thirty when he create his own studio to engage definitively his dialogue between sculpture and architecture on large scale, site specific commissions.
Fascinated by collective memories, POLO investigates the principle of indentity and the place it occupy in our intent to regenerate the city.
In this exciting Space/Time relationship context, his work try to design each time a new formal perception of sculptural language to define the comunity identity in the new XXI Century Agora.
