Frédéric Thiery
As an artist, I aspire to be able to transform reality into a dream.
Inspired by a painter father, Frédéric was interested from a very early age in drawing and painting. He studied fine arts at the University of Aix-en-Provence.After graduation, he moved to southern Spain where he discovered various crafts: leather work, silk painting, jewellery making…By being in contact with these artisans he learned to make leather accessories (belts, bags) and experimented with cold enamel work (producing the same aesthetic effect as enamel, but without firing). He attended a workshop on porcelain painting to learn this technique and soon he experienced the urge to paint on canvas.He returned from time to time to France, where the landscapes of the south inspired him. In the early 2000s, he had a decisive encounter with an art collector, who encouraged him to study the masters of the Provencal and Barbizon Schools from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
Frédéric fell in love with Provence-landscape paintings and decided to bring a modern twist to it. He uses bright colours to liven representations of streets, ports, or beaches inspired by Eugène Boudin (nineteenth century landscape artist).Frédéric tends almost to the abstract with his stylized representations. To find the shimmering colours of enamel he combines tiny glass beads in his oil painting.His painting is joyous and colourful. His works dust off the traditional subjects of the past. Much as his philosophy of life, Frédéric wishes to convey softness, joy and harmony through his painting. Humour is an important component of his work, which he expresses through the titles of his works.
