Artist: FranÇois Fressinier Title: A New Day Image Size: 36" × 27" Medium: Hand-pulled Serigraphs on Canvas About the Artist: “My passion is to paint the human figure in all of its intricacies of beauty and life. I am not interested in pure realism, to have a touch of magic in my work is what I strive for.” — François Fressinier
Born in Cognac, France in 1968 to scholarly portrait photographer parents with an affinity for aesthetics, it was fitting that modern figurative artist, François Fressinier, would develop a unique, enchanting style.
His father's admiration for the works of the Old Masters and his exposure to some of the world's most historic places, along with France's Gallo-Roman ruins and Gothic churches inclined François to explore and create figurative, symbolic artwork. In addition, his education at the Ecole Brassart in Tours afforded him the opportunity to study the drawings and paintings of old and new masters. He cites inspiration from artists like Rembrandt for showing us the soul of his sitters, Van Dyke for his elegance, Bonnard's palette, Fuchs for the fantastic world he invented; all of which influence his style today.
He has stated, "Art is something you cultivate; it is alive! My joy of painting is to listen to the piece and to have a discussion with it. Each one has its own personality".
