Eric Vanel

15th Annual ARC Salon (2020-2021)

Eric Vanel


Eric Vanel is graduated from the Université de Technologie de Compiègne (France), where he studied mechanical engineering and Industrial Design. He has worked 25 years in the automotive industry.

In parallel, he is collaborating with several game publishers, producing various illustrations and maps. In 2008, he discovers sculpture, modeling characters coming from the pop art culture. But it is in 2013, by interacting with several professional sculptors, that sculpting took a new dimension in his life. It became a real passion, which drove him into pathways and adventures constantly renewed. More recently, working with live models enabled him to get aware of how interactive the creation process can as well be.
