Patrick Altes


Patrick Altes is an artist of French/Spanish origins, whose work has been deeply informed by his own personal history. Born in Algeria, he has made a distinctive contribution to postcolonial discourse in his work and the emerging Franco-Algerian art movement. As a young adult, he lived in South Africa for two years under the apartheid, where he had his first-hand experience of a society based on discrimination, repression and deprivation of civil and political rights for a large part of the population. It deeply marked him and fuelled in him a sense for the politically, socially and humanly acceptable.
