Yves Pires (1958-) is a French born artist who gives himself only to his impassioned sculptors largely working with bronze.

Being a shy boy growing up, he turned to drawing and using his imagination and took an intrest to fine art at the age of 16 where he copied the girl of a painting of Vermeer, The Young Girl with Turban, more commonly known as the Girl with a Pearl Earring.

He then delved into a variety of media including drawing, engraving, silk screen printing, sculpture and casting. At the age of 19, he left school to learn about building technology alongside his father with whom he worked for a dozen years renovating apartments.

Due to his partnership with his father, he then became a set decorator for television series like Les Muscle or Helene et les Garcons. He also worked on a project for France2 relating to the production of a made-for-television movie adapted from “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” by Jules Verne and also did the stage design for a show by Sylvie Vartan.
