Born in Protected content , Philippe Weisbecker lived in France until Protected content . From Protected content 1968, he stayed in Tunisia, as a military cooperation, as head of the graphic department of the Tunisian Tourism Commission.

In Protected content , he moved to the United States and returned to teach at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris from Protected content 1979.

In Protected content , he moved to New York permanently. He works there as an illustrator for the press and publishing (The New Yorker, Newsweek, The Village Voice, Esquire, New York Times ...). In the early Protected content , he settled back in Europe and developed a personal work, now freed from the control, which he gives us to see in exhibitions and many works.

The exhibition at Protected content will be its first in France for a decade. Admired and abundantly published in Japan, well known to American readers, Philippe Weisbecker remains strangely misunderstood in France. This exhibition pays tribute to this atypical artist, through a selection of drawings, paintings and volumes made during the last twenty years. There are subjects of predilection: architectures, objects, vehicles ... reduced to their greatest graphic simplicity, witnesses of an intelligence of the usual forms, and a beauty to be considered with a new eye, without ceasing.
