Skoya Assémat-Tessandier’s career can be best comprehended by the ever-present touch of alchemy. His work reflects states of subconsciousness, translated across multiple disciplines such as painting, photography and performance. Since early 2000’s, Skoya devoted himself to create personal techniques, in which intricate textures over flow. His Art embodies “dreams and poems, feelings of love and rage, seasons and celestial bodies, and far beyond”, as he states.

Born and raised in Paris, he has lived in many different cities since then: this nomadic life has shaped his artistic influences and repertoire. Works conceived worldwide were presented in New York, Tokyo, Amsterdam and Paris.

Currently living and working in Lisbon, where he opened The Switch in November 2016.
