"Authenticity is the most courageous of all liberties."
Emmanuel Oger is a self-taught visionary, driven by his humanist convictions and his search for meaning. Oger got his start as an entrepreneur who held himself to the highest standards in the fields of event management and communications. When he began to crave more freedom of expression, Oger reached a turning point in this life where he took a step forward letting his creative mind freely express what he felt in his heart. Considering authenticity and originality, dedication to his art became his true passion—what he considered the most courageous and noble of liberties.
His journey of discovery and enlightenment was triggered by a documentary called "French Bashing" (2014), that focused on unfair clichés and common misrepresentation and resentment towards French people and their culture. Oger was deeply moved by this unjust portrayal and set out on a personal mission to use his art to properly celebrate French culture. Using his artist's soul and entrepreneurial mind, Oger created a way to highlight France and its beautiful history and essence through his art. He believes that the resilience of France and its unique artistic heritage is absolutely imperative and must be allowed to truly shine. Through this personal and cultural journey, the ‘Gallus’ project was born.
"Let us recapture our glories of old, regain our impertinence, re-live our passions, our French audacity, and our sense of creativity."
Motivated by his deep-rooted desire and determination to make a mark on 21st century France, Emmanuel Oger created Gallus. Through a long journey of artistic exploration, Oger found inspiration for his collection in the Rooster, a highly symbolic figure that transcends cultures and time. Through the creation of these pieces Emmanuel Oger has successfully recreated the idea of the symbolic rooster as an object of desire, beauty, and excellence.
