James Chedburn

Since 1986, James Chedburn has exhibited both in France and around the world.

His works are present in public and private collections, such as the Post Office Museum in Paris or the Treger-Saint Sylvestre collection in Portugal.

His moving sculptures are an invitation to travel.

Flying ships, migratory birds or means of locomotion from another age, his creations have the elegance and candour of childhood, humorously suggesting a bygone era.

A dreamlike world in search of a better world.
