Watercolorists from the Old Continent
From Europe to Russia

Wishing to transcribe in her large prostrate bodies, stretched, collected or against the infinite dive of light and tones of skin tones, she has integrated watercolor to its palette of techniques: black stone, charcoal, pastel, oil, acrylic. She also found in her speed of execution an urgency that suits her temperament and the excitement that animates her pencil on the sheet.

 

Atanas Matsoureff is a realistic watercolorist, but also works in stylistics and magical realism. Born in 1975 in Bansko, graduated from a high school with a profile of woodcarver, he is one of the greatest watercolor talents in the world, perhaps because he has no university education. His works are present in all modern watercolor catalogs. Winner of prestigious awards in Bulgaria and abroad, his creative biography is rich and varied.

 

A native of Grenoble, Marc Folly trained at the School of Applied Arts in Lyon. He quickly adopts watercolor and devotes himself to it, developing a style associating a figurative drawing with intense hues and finely worked values. The artist Lyonnais exposes today in many countries, including China, Taiwan and the United States (2017).

 

This Russian artist's favorite subject is flowers, which she represents with a sweetness and a poetry built on a rigorous design. On most of her still lifes she adds an insect or a small animal.

 

He posts the steps of his charts on Facebook and Instagram, creating the buzz with hundreds of thousands of views. Thierry Duval has a realistic painting, but a romantic mood for a painting with the academicism of the great masters. He works in photo studio for paintings that require a month of work. Light is its guiding thread, the sweetness of the early morning on the Quai des Orfèvres, that - violent - backlighting and early afternoon. He painted in particular Venice and of course Paris.

 

Fantastic landscapes, announcing a universe that we discover at each painting. Jef uses different media, oil and watercolor, to describe a delicate and monstrous world.
