Hervé Scott Flament
Gran son of the famous clown John Scott who wandered on European roads in a caravan from the Australian Circus in the early twentieth century, Hervé Scott Flament was born in Paris on 1 February 1959.
His father, acrobat suicide while still very young. He was raised by his mother who will transmit his taste for the strange, wonderful and a fantastic culture, born a century earlier at the end of Romanticism.
He began studies in natural sciences to become a paleontologist or zoologist but soon abandon them because we are so in 1977 and the punk movement sweeping the West.
Musician recent months he devoted himself for the next decade. After starting out in various French groups he founded in late 1979, the group "Ici Paris" with which he recorded a Lp and 4 singles.
But the failure leads to other routes; he began painting. Encouraged by the sales of his early paintings, he decided in 1984 to work this every day.
Once he learns one and discover a painting technique that no school of Fine Arts could not teach him.
In 1987 he became a guitarist of Jacques Dutronc and participates in the promotion of his album "CQFD".
At that time he comes into contact with certain esoteric circles that he will receive an education and a name: Frater Potentius (strength, power).
He also recorded two tracks for Pierpoljak, out on a self-produced compilation with Tonton David in 1989, then began the study of Egyptian hieroglyphics.
Which led him to translate the Book of the Dead in the version of the papyrus of Ani, compiling incantations and magical texts intended to protect the deceased in his crossing of the Pays de la Nuit.
But in 1987 the doors of galleries have opened and found his works regularly in Paris (Gallery Nunki 87, 88, 92, 93, 94, 95, 89 Tournelles Art Gallery, Galerie Drouant 96, Art Club 95, The ark of Morpheus 2002).
In November 1997 the Paris Erotic Museum devotes its walls to mark its inauguration. Finally in December 1997 and January 1998, the roof of the Grande Arche de la Défense welcomes him for the retrospective exhibition summarizing 13 years of research in a field where the official art never will risk.
