Alain was born and raised in Paris. At the age of 12, he followed courses in the Louvre studios and this experience determined his artistic direction. At the age of 16, he entered the Collège d’Enseignement d’Art Graphique in Corvisart. When he finished his studies, he started painting while making a living from small food-related jobs.
He exhibited at the Salon d’Automne du Grand Palais. It took him a few years to realise the importance of painting in his life and to decide to make a living out of it. He left Paris at around the age of 40 and settled in Brittany to devote himself to his passion.
Alain spreads paint with a knife on canvas, paper or wood. In order to create his landscapes, he uses trowels and spatulas, wider and stiffer than traditional painting knives.
He draws his inspiration from his travels (Italy, Greece, Algeria, Tunisia) and from the places he lived (Paris, Brittany). He transforms his memories into inhabited theatrical settings. His works can be considered as travel journals. He creates light, ambiance and atmosphere in his studio, with his mind full of images.
