d0079151_2214579.jpgHe studied at the Ecole Nationale Superieure Des Arts Décoratifs in Paris from 1981 to 1983. He attended classes at the Hochschule Des Kunste in 1984 in Berlin and enrolled in the Institut Des Hautes Etudes En Arts Plastiques in 1989 in Paris.

Veilhan's photographs, sculptures and installations are direct evocations of generic objects in everyday-life (cars, machines, animals, people), gathered in an encyclopaedic world of images where, however, nothing is treated in its true materiality or its usual colors. Veilhan attempts to set up an image glossary disturbing the viewer as a potential narrator.

In the summer of 2001, the ROM launched an international search for an architect to expand and renovate the site as part of the Renaissance ROM project. About three months later and with 50 entrants, twelve international architects were chosen to pitch, narrowing down to three by December (Italy's Andrea Bruno, Polish-born American Daniel Libeskind and Chinese-Canadian Bing Thom). In February, Daniel Libeskind was awarded the Lead Architect position for the ROM's expansion, which would be based on a deconstructionist crystal-like design he sketched on a napkin during a family wedding at the ROM. Perhaps in a bit of romantic embellishment, Libeskind claimed the idea was inspired by the Museum's gem and mineral collection, though the multifaceted design has already been seen in many of his other structures like the Denver Art Museum and Hong Kong's Creative Media Centre.
