Wilfrid Moizan exhibiting at the Saint-Martin Tourist Office
Once again, The French Saint-Martin Tourist Office is opening its door to island’s artists and welcomes Wilfrid Moizan for an exhibit from December 14th to January 13th 2012.
Wilfird Moizan was born in Brittany, France in 1969 to a family of artists. Drawing and painting being his favorite means of expression, he logically became a student of the Fine Arts College in Rennes where he familiarized himself with different techniques while studying the History of Arts.
After completing his studies in 1996, he “enlisted” as an Art teacher, and he taught in various junior high schools in Normandy before moving to Guadeloupe where he lived for 5 years. Saint-Martin, the “artist-friendly island”, is now his new home.
While painting mostly with hand-made oils, Wilfrid’s passion for engraving strongly influences his technique. He is inspired mostly by lonely characters and lush scenery. Multiple layers of paint, not-so-accidental splashes, and muted light effects are combined to put the viewers into a trance-like state.
The private view of this exhibition open to the public will be held on Wednesday December 14th 2011 from 6 to 8pm at the French Saint-Martin Tourist Office.
Don’t miss his master piece called « Le Pont de Friar’s Bay » !!!!!
