Didier Hagege was born in 1961 in Paris, France. He started to work in Henry Goetz’s workshop in the early 80’s. In 1982, he left for Italia, where he won the Villa Medici Extra-Mural Price. Hagege was established in Pietrasanta for over 12 years, where he mastered the art of sculpture and set his own workshop. There, he painted and worked on engravings together with artists from the world over. 
He rapidly understood that traveling was essential to his creativity and inspiration. He worked in the Print Jerusalem Workshop of Arik Kilemnick, in Cairo, in the Robert Stern’s studio in New-York, and criss-crossed through West Africa. In 1986, he obtained the Mishkenot Sha’ananim Award in Jerusalem. In 1992, he returned to Paris. He left for Marseille when his son, Ilan, was born in 2000.
Didier Hagege’s influences are made of different ambiences, of multiculturalism, of familiar smells and new encounters. He blends between a color rich Mediterranean expression and the sanctification of the Object as a spiritual reminder.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_Academy_in_Romeshapeimage_1_link_0
