KōV, aka Kevin Percevault - France

Born in Angers, France, KōV (aka Kevin Percevault) was introduced to stone at the age of 12 by his grandfather, a stonemason. At 14, he began his apprenticeship with stonecutter masters via Les Compagnons du Devoir, a French organization of craftsmen and artisans dating back to the Middle Ages.  He moved around France and Switzerland with his chisels to develop his stone cutting skills.  He cites this educational travel as an important part of his learning process.  Six years ago, KōV left Switzerland for the UK, where he has been working on elite projects (such as “floating” stone staircases) developing new techniques in stone masonry.  In addition, KōV is a visual artist, manifesting “painting and sculpture stepping into an enigmatic perception of reality. “
