Joël Blanc

Born in: 1946


Joël Blanc is a French painter and sculptor born in 1946 in Toulon. He studied at the School of Fine Arts and then at the Julian Academy of Paris. It was during this period that he met artists George Mathieu and Gen Paul, who encouraged him to develop his creativity in the moment, movement, and rapidity of execution. Spontaneity became then the master word of the artist's work. In his sculptures as well as in his drawings, movement is omnipresent. During the 70s, numerous trips and exhibitions in other countries allowed the painter to refine and develop his technique, particularly in direct watercolor drawing. The following decade, marked the discovery of his major source of inspiration, the equestrian world, which he discovered during his patient study of classical painters like Rubens, David or Géricault. The anatomy, power, and rapidity of the horses become predominant in the artist's pieces, and are represented in the form of watercolors, a series of bronze or oil paintings. Faithful to his approach of snapshots, we find the artist on the racetracks of some of the most prestigious trophies, as well as in numerous other sportive encounters, where his drawings have been acclaimed by the media. Joel Blanc's work has been the object of multiples exhibitions, sales, auctions, tv shows and articles in the press. He has also exhibited successively at the Golf Hotel, at the Barriere Casino and at the Royal Hotel Deauville, at the Majestic and the Martinez in Cannes, and during the International Film Festival, in Palm Beach with a collection of pieces paying tribute to the seventh art.
