Patrick grew up in Poitou-Charentes and has had a passion for drawing since his childhood. He studied at the Fine Arts School in Angoulême where he learned different techniques. He focused on painting, which particularly appealed to him.
An avid traveler, he began visiting his native region and the Atlantic coast. Then he lived for some time in the heart of the mountains of Argentina. There he learned to understand people, their customs, their inner worlds and found that despite cultural differences the same desires drive all men. He then visited Prague, Florence, Venice, Rome, and Paris, where he now lives.
Patrick has sketchbooks from his travels, he then paints them and enriches the colors with a spatula. He always works in oils with a palette of pastel shades. Recently, he dared using reds and blues, while still maintaining a whimsical atmosphere. Oil paint is the only constant in his work. He never ceases to research subjects; everything around him is there to be painted. The city is life, and Patrick integrates the characters who inhabit it into his work. They often represent the artist himself, but also strangers and common citizens which the artist allows to escape to happier worlds. There is a street here, a sky there, a memory, a landscape - bridges have privileged positions; they reach the other shore and take us to new horizons.
Patrick paints and sculpts and cannot imagine his life without color and movement. He is his own character on the canvas, and he watches every movement. Painting and music are daily passions of the artist.
The city is an essential universe for the artist. He tries to guess the secrets and stories behind every window. Through images, Patrick offers to share a moment of escapism.
