Pierre Sernet studied art at the Ateliers du Carrousel of the Musée du Louvre, Paris. In his early twenties, after working in photography for several years, he moved to the United States, where
he pursued a successful business career. His activities included the creation of the first, and what was to become the largest, fine arts database in the world—Artnet.com. Since returning to his
art-making, he has performed and exhibited in major galleries and museums in the United States and abroad.
