All of Airiauds works are informed by a passion for traditional crafts and the cultural and mystical importance of their origins. It is easy to forget when seeing a pattern or a textile in the 21st century that there is usually a great symbolic or magical significance in its ancestry.
Airiaud was born in Nantes France in 1983. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Nantes (ERBAN) in 2006 and studied History of Art at Freie Universtaet Berlin in 2008. Airiaud lives and works in Berlin.
