Alain Kirili, abstract sculptor, lives between Paris and New York but his art is worldwide open. He likes meeting other arts and artists and often invites jazz muscians, dancers, poets to perform among his sculptures in his studio, in an art gallery or museum. He uses all kind of materials such as stone, iron, terra cotta, zinc, aluminium, cardboard, resin, wax, polystiren, concrete.... If he could, he would even sculpt clouds. Portrait of a joyful and hyper active man, who invents forms promised to caresses.
