Description

Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato

Dufilho’s educational background in architecture and medicine provides a conceptual foundation in which his innovative artworks are established. During his medical studies he was drawn to anatomy and the complex structures that are essentially hidden by skin while his architectural education taught him technical skills, introduced him to the history of art, and a new way of thinking.
  
Working completely out of his workshop, constructed with shipping containers and situated in the Northern part of France in a town named Quesnoy-sur-Deule, Dufilho manually builds each masterpiece by hand. Over time the studio has grown into a playground for his artistic inventions and is equipped with all the necessary machinery from an assortment of belt sanders with a sanding cabin and industrial polisher to a painting booth, manual lathe, industrial hand milling machine and every type of welding machine imaginable.

Using local resources, Dufilho incorporates materials from vendors within a 30 km radius of his studio for his projects. The only work he subcontracts is the laser cutting of the metal plates and the remaining artisanship is completed by the talented hands of the artist himself. Dufilho shares, “The material that I use the most is metal because it is an element that allows me a freedom to add or subtract. Metal also has the advantage of being eternal unlike composite materials.”

For Dufilho, each project brings its own challenges in workmanship, manufacturing time completely varying from one model to another. “Although the level of finish is not necessarily a determining factor in art, for me it is something that I place at a high importance,” proclaims the artist.

The Creator

Antoine Dufilho

After studying architecture and medicine, Antoine Dufilho’s passion for art and automobiles led him to an enterprising new career in sculpture. He is surrounded by a close family filled with diverse and creative talents such as architecture, painting, and sculpting. His father is a surgeon and his great uncle is Jacques Dufilho, a famous French actor and producer. “During my childhood, the summers at my grandfather's house were largely devoted to making sculptures from clay harvested from his farm,” remembers Dufilho. It is not surprising Dufilho eventually found his knack in art.

In the same way his adoration for automobiles stems from family, “I come from a family of car lovers, starting with my grandfather and my great-uncle, an owner of a Bugatti Grand Prix, who passed on their love of automobiles to my father, a collector himself, he naturally transmitted the same passion to me,” Dufilho created his first work, a rendition of the Bugatti Grand Prix, for his father’s birthday, in turn, opening many doors in the world of art and sculpture to him.
