Artistic career :
Karl Lagasse's career began in 1996 with the sale of his first work in Antwerp at the age of 15.
A few years later, in 2003, he prepares his first exhibition in Paris where he shows his works mixing collages and painting, as suggested to him by Yvaral Vasarely, son of the Hungarian plastic artist Victor Vasarely, when they met in 1998.
He started sculpting in 2004 and found inspiration by watching Les Nuits Blanches. He then began to search for his own style and began the "Buildings" series, "totem" works made of different materials. The same year, he left Paris to settle in Normandy.
In 2006, Isy Brachot (famous Brussels gallery) dedicated an exhibition to him. Only one painting did not find a buyer. Karl Lagasse then offers it to an amateur who does not have the possibility to acquire it.
In 2008, he returned to Paris to exhibit at the Espace Pierre Cardin. Paintings, sculptures and photographs are presented. A film on the making of the works is also shown there.
2009, year of creation of one of the most emblematic works of the artist, the One Dollar. A work resulting from his admiration for the United States but also symbolizing what it is possible to do with one dollar; "Making art with $1".
In 2010, he was chosen to represent the town of Deauville (Normandy) on the occasion of the "Horsemania" world equestrian championship which takes place in Lexington (United States), a town twinned with the Normandy seaside resort, for which he created a sculpture.
After the "One Dollar", which was an international success, he presented another work that would also become emblematic, the "Cryptogram One". It is at the Art Monaco exhibition in 2011 that the public will discover it.
To celebrate the 65th anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival in 2012, he created a "Building" measuring 2.80 m by 60 cm wide in cement, wood, glass and photos in collaboration with Corbis and exhibited it at the Carlton Cinema Club. The artists present at the festival are invited to sign the work, to leave a message. This is what José Garcia, Michel Hazanvisius, Bérénice Bejo, Gad Elmaleh and also Cuba Gooding Jr, Tim Roth, Matthew McConaugheyou and Zac Efron are doing.
