Gilles Taschet received his education from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Paris.
Not only does he practice the art of scenography in the fields of theatre and opera, but he also works in the field of exhibition design where he has introduced the notion of storytelling and fiction as central to museography.
After a long collaboration with the creative team of Jean-Pierre Vincent, he joined Jean-Louis Martinelli at the Théâtre National de Strasbourg in 1996 where he both acted as scenographer for Martinelli’s performances and taught scenography to the students of the theatre.
Since 2000, he has been the scenographer for Jean-Louis Martinelli.
In 2007, he began a new collaboration with Lars Noren, a Swedish playwright and director.
Since 2002, he has also been an associate professor at the Institut Français de la Mode and has worked extensively as a Luxury Brand Consultant.
