Maurice Douard

Born in 1951 - France

BIOGRAPHY

Maurice Douard is a French artist born in 1951.

He ended up at the Beaux-Arts in Toulouse in 1971, where he distanced himself from the institution. His fame as "teacher of the teachers" lead him up a solitary path. The Warsaw school of chromatology attracted him.

Maurice Douard worked on light analysis, color dynamics, visual effects. Psychiatrists and psychologists backed him. This led him to express these theories with flat tint. He was looking for image deconstruction, but in a random way, favouring the approach by which the subject is fractured by human engineering. He shied away from all automatism linked to any form of machinery.

1990, disease struck him again and for 10 years his struggle against the disease will estrange him somewhat from the world, he will put a lot more effort in his inner circle and his atelier. Out of this distressing experience, a vision and the implementation of his thoughts which are currently on display, will arise.
