Claude Morin came from a family that was influenced by the printing trade. Born in 1946, the Frenchman developed a taste for printmaking at an early age and showed exceptional talent in drawing and sculpture.
Morin graduated with a degree in decorative and fine arts. His work is characterized by both shimmering and exceedingly clear colors that appeal to a large number of collectors all over the world.
Morin made his first aluminum sculpture for President Georges Pompidou.
In 1986 he founded his own studio.
Since then, he has received numerous awards for his work, including the Gold Medal of the City of New York, the Gold Medal of the Academia Italia, and the Art Prize of the National Academy in Metz.
