Andre Dubreuil was born in Lyon in 1951. After his schooling and various courses with antique dealers, he travelled to England and worked there as an expatriate for some fifteen years, He first focused his attention on the iron bar, which he bent and transformed into all kinds of forms. This material resulted in chairs, wall lamps and chandeliers. he then took a different direction, exploring materials like copper, enamel, steel and glass beads for decorating mirrors.
André Dubreuil is a craft artist, the absolute opposite of a designer. He is only interested in decorative art made luxuriously by hand, where each work is a unique item. He has been creating his own works since 1985, with elegance, high quality and poetry as his guiding principles.
