Biography:
Valentin Hauben grew up in a small French village between Avignon and Les Baux-de-Provence. Like many, drawing was initially a youthful escape from the school paradigm. Since then, it has accompanied him as his main working tool and a medium for experimentation. As a young man, he started studying video game design, then he left France for Belgium where I studied graphic and visual communication.
