This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Georges Moquay was born in France to Rotraut Uecker, the widow of Yves Klein and sister to Gunther Uecker, and grew up surrounded by artists such as Pierre Restany, Arman, Cesar, and Niki de Saint-Phalle.  Beginning painting at 24, Moquay has explored the process of creating work, sometimes incorporating video or music in a rave-like art experience.  In his paintings he uses an amalgam of icons and symbols.  In his latest work (2011) "bodiless thick-outlined heads, Moquay's "warriors", encircle the long-necked white buddhas in a scene of cultural fusion made up of postmodern hieroglyphics. Moquay's "warriors" draw on Aztec pictographs, Mexico's Dia de los Muertos' skeleton Catrinas, and even the head of Pez candy dispenser. Using colorful x's, o's and arrows to fill the background along with interjections of text, Moquay's grand scale paintings resemble larger-than-life hip-hop cartoons." (Press Release. De Buck Gallery, May 2011)

Moquay has been featured in exhibitions at Guy Pieters Gallery (Belgium), Galerie Be-Air Fine Art (Geneve), and Galerie de Lices (Saint-Tropez).

Georges Moquay lives and works in Paris and Arizona.
