Nature has always inspired the artist. Realistic wildlife painting has become one of the most classical arts. To bring more lightness and modernity, I have chosen a new material, plexiglass, on which I make the subject appear with sobriety.

 

Plexiglass also allows me to create a 3D painting with the animal on a foreground panel and elements of his environment on a background panel incorporating the real shadow of the animal on it too.

 

For the paintings on canvas, generally raw linen or cotton, I have privileged the bareness of the subject without any or very few elements of his surroundings.

 

To give more strength to the composition, I prefer larger formats (120x160 cm or 120x120 cm).

Thank you for visiting my website, leave me your email address if you want to be kept aware of new additions to the gallery.
