Alexis Cladiere, born in 1976 in Bagnolet (F), lives and works near Paris. After finishing high school, he attends preparatory classes to study engineering and obtains a Master's degree in Pure Mathematics. His father, an engineer and architecture enthusiast, instilled in him a love of art. In his works, Cladiere mixes architecture and mathematics, computer science and technology. The artist tries to make the unintentional aesthetics of recycled elements evident by extracting them from their functional and utilitarian context to create an art object. He works with different materials, using digital means, but above all the tools of Japanese wood art. He creates sculptures, paintings, drawings, installations, 3D prints with digital milling, always searching for new materials and new techniques of realisation. In his sculptures he combines aluminium elements, cement, wood, with the intention of imprinting an urban and architectural character on each of his works, regardless of the dimensions of the work. His works on paper also mark his quest for rigour and essentiality through clean lines, spatial fields filled with cement powder or contrasts of different materials. Using the pseudonym 36RECYCLAB, the artist is very well known in the urban scene for realising large collages in major cities such as Paris, Barcelona, Hong Kong, Milan, Tokyo, Shanghai, etc. Cladier, however, wants to keep these two realities of his work and activity strictly separate, hence the decision to use a pseudonym when he moves in the urban art scene. Instead, he keeps his name for the works he realises outside this context. Cladiere has exhibited in Paris, Berlin, Denver and Bilbao. In Italy, the artist is exclusively represented by the Boesso Art Gallery.
