Claude Mediavilla (1947-) is a French calligrapher.
BiographyClaude Mediavilla was born in 1947 in the south from France. From 1965 to 1971, it follows studies of Calligraphie, Paléographie and painting in Scriptorium and the École of the Art schools of Toulouse. It joined the École of the Art schools of Paris in 1976 as a teacher. Throughout its career, it continues to deliver its teaching with students of all nationalities - School of decorative Arts of Paris, France, 1987; University of Arts at Hamburg, Germany, 1999; University of Arts with Busan, South Korea, 2002 - and animates many training courses and conferences in France like abroad (the USA, Belgium, Holland, Germany…).
In 1975, it opens its own studio of creation in Paris and completes typographical and calligraphic work for governmental advertizing agencies, organizations and private customers. The president of the French Republic, various embassies and of the ministries of foreign countries, like Germany, Japan, the USA or Italy, call upon its services for work of prestige.
Spearhead of the rebirth of calligraphic art in France, he is the author of many articles and works which refer both for the professional informed the impassioned amateur.
Claude Mediavilla, from which virtuosity extends beyond the Latin writing, is often regarded as the most talented contemporary French calligrapher. He enjoys an uncontested international repute today and received the price Charles Peignot in 1982.
In addition to its contribution impossible to circumvent with the corpus of knowledge on the history of calligraphic art, the original contribution of Claude Mediavilla is the setting in light of the relation which exists between penmanship and the abstract art. This approach is translated in its pictorial works which it regularly exposes throughout the world.
