Braudeau’s technique is unique: he still paints with
his hands, just like when he was a child, and say that to him, painting is like
falling. He doesn’t know what the drips will do, and it is their momentum which
leads him to the final state of the piece. A leg could be born from a single
line, an eye from a drop, two entwined bodies from a simple curve… in his own
words, he ‘lets the drips dance’ on the canvas.



 



Although most of his work is in black and
white, he rejects the idea that this is his signature style. Colours reappear
in his works with the return of summer and better weather, and he has said he
needs this warmth, this colour. When colours do feature they are bright and
striking, merging and mixing in unexpected ways.  



His paintings are a reflection of his
soul, of the present moment, of his life. He has many sources of inspiration:
books, people, nature… When Braudeau isn’t in his studio, he becomes a poet of
the streets. He moves freely in space, making traffic signs and paving stones
his playground. His creative fever is driven by a powerful need to share his
art with the public; he craves exchange and communication through his frescoes.



His greatest sources of
inspiration are the major players of the 20th century: Henri
Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Jean-Michel Basquiat and above all Jean Cocteau, whose
mythological figures feature in Braudeau’s work. These legendary artists shared
a belief in the importance of freedom, and Braudeau carries that belief forward
into his own work.
