HAROLD AUPETIT
Painter - Mediums Oil and Acrylic

ARTIST STATEMENT

“Passionate self-taught painter, I started painting in my Parisian studio for more than 15 years. Initially adept of acrylic, I was looking for a more intense visual intensity. In 2014, I felt the need to change medium and found the desired balance by moving towards oil painting. My inspirations are mainly drawn from nature; urban landscapes or people. The cozy atmosphere of the Viennese coffeehouse, the colorful landscapes, graceful moments of life. A realistic expression of the world and the people who make it.

Qualified as a contemporary figurative, my graphic universe has evolved over the years towards a more spontaneous style. Wishing thereby, transcribe the emotion through the atmosphere and aesthetics of the composition and colors more than by the details. The result is an expressive and raw painting leading me little by little to abstraction.”
