André Baldet is a painter-illustrator-graphic designer-posterist-comic artist and a passionate traveler. In parallel with image assignments for communication or editing, he leads a global and original artistic project, "Caravan", which brings together the works that the world and its extraordinary diversity inspire.
Unlike the painters-travelers who work on a motive, André does not work directly on the spot, but, rather he makes field surveys by taking notes of views and quick sketches. The real work of creation is done in the neutrality of his studio. He rewrites the journey, reinvents it and re-interprets it in complete freedom by relying on his know-how of the image.
Considering that each trip of André's is unique and has its own language of shapes and colors, he applies to a permanent stylistic renewal, letting the places visited influence and guide his art. It is the plurality of expressions that makes the singularity of this project. The variety of original propositions is therefore very large, but the coherence effect dominates with a luminous palette and an impression of lightness, tranquility and cheerfulness that permeates the essence of the work. The idea of pleasure feeds the creative process.
