In the characteristic landscape of contemporary art galleries, the Galerie Brugier-Rigail has a unique artistic and aesthetic line. Both urban and contemporary, this gallery created in 2001 is the image of its two founders. Éric Brugier and Laurent Rigail, two art lovers, are collectors before being gallery owners. They assume to present only artists and pieces that they like, and have the habit of accompanying and supporting young artists that they find promising. Having both known their first artistic crushes in their youth, the aesthetic line of the gallery has naturally taken an “old school” trajectory, presenting urban art pioneers of the 1980s. Miss Tic, Speedy Graphito, Jérôme Mesnager, or Robert Combas and Guy Denning are some of the great French names that are exhibited. Among the international artists, Shepard Fairey, JonOne or John Matos Crash can be admired. However, the two collectors have never ceased to immerse themselves in new contemporary and urban art, and are on the lookout for any curiosity. They also represent very young artists such as Levalet, Nasty, MadC, L’Atlas, Monkeybird or Mr. Chat. If they take pleasure in supporting their artists, Éric Brugier and Laurent Rigail are equally dedicated to advising and guiding collectors. Expertise, experience, and ethical transparency are the order of the day.
