Biography
Born in 1939, Gérard Fromanger is a French painter, photographer and plastic artist. Gérard Fromanger didn't concur with the traditional image of beauty and other conventional concepts, therefore he quickly left Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and prefered to follow evening classes, animated by Robert Lesbounit at the Academie de la Grande Chaumière. He was noticed by Cesar, who let him use his workshop and stayed by his side for two years. This relationship allowed Formanger to meet other artists like Jacques Prévert and the Giacometti brothers. He joined the narrative figuration movement and participated in creating the Nouvelle Histoire. In the 60's, he became a key figure of the artistic scene. Founder of the Beaux-Arts workshop in May 1968 and director of film-tracts in collaboration with Jean-Luc Godard, Gérard Fromanger, he became part of the world of the cinema world. Then he turned towards photography so a to transpose reality through images from his viewpoint. His relationship with various artists, writers, philosophers and musicians are a great inspiration for him, without which his works wouldn't have evolved. Gérard Fromanger continues to be on the forefront, his stained glass project for the Roman church Anzy-le-Duc, divided the opinion in 2015.
