The texts on the activities of the contemporary artist

Painting is a project that becomes reality through techniques, practices and private spaces. The contemporary artist must acquire a trade, but also to make it evolve as much as society; the art market as much as the story.

These few texts are an overview of the everyday practice of contemporary artist (drawing, painting, color, support, but also watercolor and oil). The new disciplines such as computer graphics and art design add their possibilities of expression to the artists style.

The painter tries to reread the laws of balance and aesthetics between figuration and abstraction. The liberating knowledge feeds the creative risk. The visual artist still faces the art market, the economic world of business, and the social world of large gatherings - such as fairs and exhibitions.
