Born in 1976.
He lives and works in Paris (France).

Graduated in economics from the Sorbonne University, he attended the workshops of Hubert de Chalvron and Jean-Marc Thommen at the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris. He then worked with the sculptor Arnaud Kasper and continued his apprenticeship during a residency in Santa Fe in the United States.

The artist uses a painting that might seem recreational to talk about complex subjects and question the role of art in general and society. Thibault Laget-Ro has developed a characteristic style using flat tints of color, representing individuals with no indication of geographical, sociological or genomic affiliation. Thibault Laget-Ro’s subjects are engaged and confront us with a certain reality without imposing it on us.

He has worked for many years with famous war reporters (Patrick Chauvel, Camille Lepage…) who have led him to deal with various world conflicts such as the war in Syria or to address the issue of migration.

His works are among the collection of the Musée d’Art Contemporain de Baie Saint Paul (Canada), the Artothèque de Draguignan (France), the Artothèque de Lille (France), the COLAS Foundation (France).
