Antoine Donzeaud (b. 1985 in Vitry-sur-Seine, France) is a Paris based video, painting, sculpture and installation artist. Donzeaud’s work has been exhibited at Nirox Foundation, Johannesburg ; Rupert, Vilnius ; Valentin, Paris ; Ashes/Ashes, Los Angeles ; Nicodim, Bucharest ; MonChéri, Brussels. He is the co-founder of the project space Exo Exo in Paris. Donzeaud is currently preparing upcoming shows at Musée Vesunna and Centre Culturel de la Visitation.

Through the mediums of painting, sculpture or video, Antoine Donzeaud develops installations that balance creation and reinvention with a rawness reminiscent of youthful nonchalance. Donzeaud unfolds stories, mostly rooted in contemporary culture, depicting our generation and society. His works convey simple gestures, both pictural and sculptural, often laced with irony, evolving in a staged environment but ever so close to home.
