François Sahuc

Passionate about drawing since childhood, Francis’ dream came true when he entered the School of Fine Arts in Paris. He graduated in 1984 with a degree in architecture and opened his own agency in the Marais district of Paris. His artistic passion for the human body and nudes led him to frequent workshops with live models, such as those led by the French artist Bertrand Godard (twentieth- twenty-first centuries). After several years of practice, Francis found his style: a dynamic design with warm and bright colours, composed of powerful lines, at times rounded or elongated.
The Parisian artist works spontaneously in his loft-studio in Clamart (Hauts-de-Seine, France). This quiet space is bathed in a light favourable to concentration and creativity. François’ drawings are the result of sessions of often quickly posed male and female models. He manages to quickly capture the very essence of a movement. His observation is also focused on the play of light and the personality that the model exudes.
Francis’ work is characterized by graphic experiments and constant technique. His drawings, first black and white, are made on paper before being pasted on the canvas. The artist uses pastel or ink. He then reworks certain backgrounds in oil or pastel to emphasize the aesthetic forms. The specificity of his work lies in the depiction of the model from different angles, sometimes grouped in the same drawing. These different poses allow him to represent the body and its movement in space. Splashes of colour are finally added to enhance the body’s sculpting and highlight the effects of shadows.
