Peso Priced Item.  Leon Radegonde, renowned Seychelles artist (born 1950) . This work is signed and dated January 1988 and measures 70" by 58" inches. This appears to be constructed of recycled paper.. VERY CONTEMPORARY. One of a kind. The last photo shows the artist with the work when he was selling it to the current owner.. That photo actually shows his creation better than the ones I took under plexiglass.. in your home, it will be more impressive, it is shooting photos through a glass or plexi that make the image harder to discern.

Radegonde uses the Arte Povera style (meaning poor or impoverished art) which originated from Italy in the 1960’s whereby most of these artists use commonplace materials that can bring a pre-industrial age such as earth, rocks, clothing, paper and rope.

(Seychelles News Agency) - Discovering his passion for art at the age of seventeen, Seychellois Leon Radegonde is today one of the country’s renowned artist specialising in contemporary art. 

Radegonde together with other local artist George Camille recently participated in the 56th Arts Biennale in Venice, Italy. 

Although he has acquired quite a following in overseas market especially Germany, France and Italy, Radegonde admits that perhaps the appreciation for contemporary art is still a new concept in Seychelles, and therefore the local market is very limited.

One of the few places in the Indian Ocean island nation to see the work of this Seychellois artist is Passerose Gallery in Cote d’Or on Praslin, the Seychelles’ second populated island.  

“Radegonde’s work is sombre, and does not depict the Seychelles scenery, his work is completely abstract and the European clients who acquire his work are those who appreciate the depth of contemporary art,” explains Pierre Harter, the owner of the gallery.

According to Harter, mostly French and German clients purchase Radegonde’s work. He is also well known among German art lovers, as as he presented a solo exhibition in 2011 in Munich, the largest city in Bavaria, Germany.  

Radegonde uses the Arte Povera style (meaning poor or impoverished art) which originated from Italy in the 1960’s whereby most of these artists use commonplace materials that can bring a pre-industrial age such as earth, rocks, clothing, paper and rope.
