Philippe Marchal is a Corporate administrator.
But he is also a collector and passionate of visual arts.
To give live to his artistic passions, he created Artesio in 2010.
Artesio is a private artistic operator, flexible and dynamic, who organizes and presents various activities dedicated to the visual arts.
It can be specific events, exhibitions, editions, media, ressources and the creation and management of artistic venues.
Philippe Marchal is the organizer of many events devoted to the artist’s book, of which he is recognized as a specialist.
But he is also the curator of numerous thematic or specific exhibitions devoted, in particular, to ceramic or contemporary tapestry.
In the profusion of the world of art, in which many activities clash, Artesio is a catalyst for passionate projects and enthusiastic achievements.
To help and allow the creation, the expression and the artistic diffusion : such are the goals of Artesio.
For the arts. Passionately !
I have always preferred the madness of passions to the wisdom of indifference.
Philippe Marchal likes to make this sentence of Anatole France.

It is a deity described as brilliant, radiant, and resplendent that has correspondences in Celtic mythology. With these attributes, Belenos is a luminous God.
Belenos is presented as the model of the Sun-God. Belenos represents sunlight or solar rays that reach the earth’s surface. Besides the sun, Belenos is also the symbol of youth, renewal, and by extension of the spring.
Belenos has also often been likened to Apollon, the Greek God of the arts. It’s therefore very logically that he was chosen to give his name to an artistic integration prize.
