Fonteyne David

My way of painting is like a state of love, a hug, a big leap. Whatever the outcome, all that matters is the emotion it generates.
Initiated at a young age in the mysteries of colour by his grandfather, David cannot remember a single day of his life without painting. He sold his first paintings at the age of twelve, already proud to continue the family tradition. The artistic career of his ancestors is indeed rich with numerous awards. David prefer to give free rein to his impulses, sweep away the codes and celebrate his independence. Ignited by the limitless possibilities of art, he gives of his whole being in each of his paintings. Through his seascapesand landscapes, David invites the public to explore new territories.
Always fascinated by his grandfather’s thick and tortured palette, he works exclusively in oil in tubes or pigment-based. His approach to the medium that he applies with a knife reveals sculpture. David’s work is in the tradition of the Impressionists. The sensual texture characteristic of his technique inspires mixtures full of tenderness. Just like colour, this relief allows him to emphasize certain elements of his compositions. An instinctive strength comes from the rough and dense features. No details or frills come between his emotions, gestures and art. Committed and generous, his paintings are all open windows to the soul.
