After studying Applied Arts at the École Duperré, he founded Atelier LZC went on creating custom-made pieces for Baccarat, Cartier, and Van Cleef & Arpels. In 2009, he undertook a new artistic adventure and took an interest in jewelry and etching techniques. He is currently art director at the École Supérieure d’Art Conte, which specializes in design, textiles, and fashion. He continues creating new limited edition items such as wall jewelry, wallpapers, etchings, and fine stationery. In 2016, Michael was commissioned by our co-founder Isabelle Dubern – who was Dior Home Artistic Director at the time –a marvelous set of playing cards as well as an original series of postcards for Dior.
A multi-faceted body of work created through modified etching techniques, which has resulted in highly unique and eclectic pieces. Michael has created a world where decoration is reexamined by merging two different artistic techniques.
Drawings above all else. His many sources of inspiration include René Lalique’s Art Nouveau, Chinese paper-cuts from the Gaomi folk art tradition – on which his sculptures are based- and 17th-century still-life paintings of the Northern School.
His mural sculptures – better known as wall jewelry- made with cut copper plates that he uses to etch copper, paper, and fabrics; the color palette of his sublime bespoke wallpapers that evoke the fantastic imagery of ancient frescos.
The Invisible Collection has the pleasure of presenting a selection of designs by Micahel Cailloux, available online for purchase exclusively through us.
