Serge Helenon
Mon Jardin Zoologique



An original signed carborundum engraving by French artist Serge Helenon (1934-) titled "Mon Jardin Zoologique", 1989. Hand pencil signed and numbered by Helenon. Limited Edition: 29/95. Published by Vision Nouvelle in Paris, 1989. Sheet size: 30" x 23". Mint condition. Extremely rare. Serge Helenon (French) was born in 1934 in Martinique. He was based in Paris executing printmaking published by Vision Nouvelle, as well as a painter. A well listed artist, Helenon's works may be found in many public and private collections around the world. Born in Martinique in 1934, Serge Hélénon trained at the School of Applied Arts in Fort-de-France before progressing to The School of Decorative Arts in Nice. During the 1960s, Helenon exhibited his work at the same galleries as James Coignard, Henri Goetz and Max Papart, who collectively had many exhibitions on the French Riviera. In 1970, in collaboration with another West Indian artist , Louis Laouchez , he founded "The Negro Caribbean School” in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. Their own production and their respective education left a lasting mark on their students. The ’Vôhou - Vôhou’ movement they helped to introduce became a decisive milestone in the development of Ivory Coast contemporary art. Helenon went on to teach in Senegal.
