Among the aisles and displays of the artists, the works of André Gacko captivated visitors. However, he used only one material, the simplest: paper, crumpled.

It is by observing carrier pigeons, when he was a child, in Senegal, that the passion was born.
A passion exacerbated by the monitoring of many animal documentaries.
Obviously, André is challenged by nature and the animals he willingly reproduces.
But his art is not limited to animals. Andre, who handles paper with incredible speed and dexterity, brings wrestlers,
