Philippe Vasseur

Born in 1954 - France


Philippe Vasseur was born in Lisieux, France, in 1954. He is a graduate of the Paris École des Beaux-Arts and of the London Academy of Drawing. The son of a woodworker, he was inspired by his father’s artistry. It made an indelible impression on the mind of a young man who realized early in life that even his purposes could, one day, manifest through the work of his own hands. While he was still a student in Paris, Gallimard (the publishing house) used one of his drawings for the dust jacket of one of its publications. His work is then seen by millions of readers. Philippe Vasseur holds a degree from the Beaux-Arts in Paris. He has been showing his work since 1977.

Later, Philippe Vasseur focused on his painting practice, and particularly on oil painting. With his classical training, he opens a world of possibilities in each of his paintings. He has been showing his works since 1977.

He has had numerous exhibitions, mainly at the Galerie Claudine Legrand (Paris) since 1994, at the Axelle Fine Art Gallery in New-York, or at the Shimose Gallery in Tokyo.

"The image frozen image, the result of the painter's meticulous work does not interest me. I prefer this fog which, which is connected to the material of the painting and from which phantoms can emerge. On the canvas, shadows have more power than objects; the space is best expressed through emptiness. And while the walls and the faces are fading, the painting is trying to make us touch them for the first time..."
