Didier Hamey was born in 1962 in Dunkirk where he grew up. He likes to cite his origins and you can't help but think, when you see his work, of the moment of madness that takes hold of this city during "Carnival", which he never misses.
His workshop is now in Saou in the Drôme where he lives.
He exhibits in several galleries in France and abroad.
His work appears in many private and public collections: the National Contemporary Art Fund, the National Library, the Gravelines Engraving Museum.
He has just made a beautiful retrospective exhibition of his engraved work at the Museum of Print in Gravelines and a residency at the Casa de Velasquez in Madrid where he started a series of dry points entitled “Bonshommes”.
