Charlie Barthelet

Charlie Barthelet (b. 1985, France) creates large sculptural objects by wrapping shapes in layers of yarn and fabric, linking them together to make organic, lyrical pieces. He is a quiet and hard-working presence at Creativity Explored, deriving pleasure from the artistic process and the tactile qualities of his materials.  

Barthelet joined Creativity Explored as a studio artist in 2009 after graduating from Mission High School. He is an international traveler who spends many summers in the country of his descent.
