Art gallery in Santorini

art gallery in Santorini

While visiting an art gallery in Santorini, an idea occurred to me. Why not exhibit my watercolors directly on this island? Yes, after all, I painted many pictures while on vacation in Greece. It’s a great opportunity to show my work directly on site. This is why I contacted the Strogiliart Gallery in Thira. So I presented my work, I will have the chance to exhibit my paintings and paintings in this art gallery nestled in the heart of Fira, the main city of Santorini.

Nestled across Greece, the small Greek Orthodox churches take on an even more special identity when they cling to the hillsides of the Cycladic islands. These little immaculate white buildings bear witness to the faith of the men and women who built them in difficult situations.

They sculpt the rocky and dry landscapes of a dry and arid land. Their blue domes cover their walls and are a landmark for the traveler who gets lost in the islands.

Painting in Greece is a privilege for artists, the subjects allow many compositions and are so many opportunities to paint pictures. So I’m grateful to have an expo in an art gallery in Santorini.

Magazine illustration

Besides my visual activity, I often work in magazine illustration. I particularly like it because it takes me out of my comfort zone. Indeed, you need a strong desire to document yourself in order to precisely illustrate the images that match the narration. An exercise that I love because it allows me to explore new artistic horizons.

Drawings of characters, scenes of life, still lifes or landscape paintings… There are many pretexts to broaden one’s graphic palette. Historical scenes give me immense pleasure: to dive into History in order to bring to life through drawings famous or forgotten people or places. It exerts a certain fascination.

Substantive files allow us to understand, through multiple visuals. A rich iconography at the service of the author of the text. A special alchemy, a link between text and images.

New York magazine France-Amérique has commissioned a new report from me to illustrate. The incredible story of Coca Cola, which is suing Vin Mariani for trademark infringement. American giant against the Corsican family business has allowed me to paint a large number of gouaches and watercolors on the United States as well as a few paintings on Corsica.

An opportunity also to paint some famous figures such as the sculptor Bartholdi, or Doctor Pemberton, the inventor of Coca Cola. Illustrating for a magazine allowed me to explore many anecdotes from history.
