Gaël Davrinche French, b. 1971
Gaël Davrinche is a French artist born in Saint-Mande in 1971 who lives and works in Montreuil. Having graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, painting has become Davrinche's main artistic medium. The artist also uses the medium of sculpture to translate his vision into a 3D form.
Through the decisive gesture of painting, Gaël Davrinche questions the portrait in its historical and social signification, its reality and imaginary. His works take a strange turn that destabilizes us with the ubiquiti of the object. They become an interrogation of his individual role on his attitude, his relationship with the world, and others.
From revisiting paintings of great masters, sometimes in an impudent way, like what he did with la Joconde, to his hyper-realistic portraits, Gael Davrinche delves into a multitude of different artistic expressions. His technique is clearly refined and is impressively conveyed through his paintings, drawings and pastels of portraits and still life.
Gaël Davrinche’s artworks have been exhibition in galleries around the world, and his artworks are part of several collections including the Fondation Colas, the Musée Ingres, the Musée des Beaux Arts de Chambéry, the FRAC Haute-Normandie, and the Fondation Salomon pour l’Art Contemporain.
Lives and works in Montreuil, France.
