At the School of Fine Arts in Paris from 1948-1953, he attended the workshops of sculptors Jean Tinguely and Germaine Richier, for whom he made sculpture bases. He exhibited for the first time in 1955 at the gallery Palmes in Paris, then at the gallery Contemporaries in New York in 1959, where he met the great names of American art (Leo Castelli, Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Jasper Johns, Isamu Noguchi …). The success is not long in coming: the prestigious New York museums (MOMA and Guggenheim) buy several of his works. However, he will experience a crossing of the desert from 1965 to 1980, without stopping to create. Philippe Hiquily passed away in March of 2013.
