Acrylic on Canvas 31,5 x 31,5 in (80 x 80 cm) Jean-FranÃ§ois Larrieu was born on 28th February 1960 in Tarbes (high PyrÃ©nÃ©es). He is a self-taught artist who is living and working in Paris. Larrieu is President of the â€œParis Autumn Showâ€ (Salon dâ€™Automne de Paris) and Vice President of the Government affiliated â€œFederation of Graphic and Plastic Arts Associationsâ€. The artist elaborates through his oil paintings ramifications which starts from a basic point and then progresses like a semi-conscious exploration; his hand, likens to an antennae drawing from the creative cosmos and delivers the genius. The result is exotic cities filled with wonderfully rich architecture steadily rising up and then spreads itself across the land of canvas with amazing constructions of onion-shaped domes, minarets and cupolas. For Larrieu, imagination is the rule of the game. Furthermore the combinations are all the more variable according to the angle from which the masterâ€™s painting is observed. Through his paintings, Larrieu invites us to join him on a fabulous journey into his magical cities where Roman and Gothic porches; Baroque palaces, the China of Marco Polo as well as the Venice of Casanova are strongly reminiscent. When the painted cities on canvas is near completion, the artist ingeniously conjures into being an emblematic figure, which oft most is an animal. The beauty and elegance of Larrieuâ€™s paintings will bring forth from the audience certain appreciation; where the meanders are different, the cities enchanting and the journey is never the same every time.
