Laurent Bouro

Born in 1967 - France

BIOGRAPHY

Born in 1967, Laurent Bouro lives and works in Tours. He is a self-taught artist. He has dedicated his career to painting for the last ten years. He exhibits regularly in galleries and art fairs in France. His works have been acquired by collectors all over the world: Paris, Rome, New York, London, Brussels, Auckland. His main themes are the face and the body, for which he uses all his mastery of the art of the portrait.

Laurent Bouro paints faces in order to try and portray the human soul in its timeless dimension. Inspired by ethnic masks, he revisits the "facies" through mixed techniques. He uses acrylic retouched with oil, collage, scratching, scraping... the effects of the materials are superimposed on the grain of the canvas, and on the irregularities of the wooden support.

The traits of his characters are rather carved than it drawn. He always paints men. The expressions go through a sight without eyes, to better allow them to show their inner lives. Between cave painting and tribal painting, between dripping and tattooed prints, Laurent Bouro's masks embody a viril masculinity, despite the scars of life.
