Christophe Rey was born in Cape Town, South Africa, to Mauritian parents in 1978. He was educated in Johannesburg and Mauritius before studying fine art for a year and music for four years at the University of Cape Town. He has exhibited solo in a number of places in Mauritius and lately at The Cerney Dock (with THE THIRD DOT). Christophe’s work, be it painting, sculpture or songwriting, is focused on boiling things down, on finding the essence of an idea and expressing it in the simplest and most effective way. Through the use of devices, such as repetition, symbolism, juxtaposition, metaphor, codes, humour and colour, he tries to engage the viewer.
