About jean-humbert savoldelli
I paint for over 20 years ; I started painting by Hyper-realism and Trompe-l'oeil. I've learned the basics in a special course of decorative painting. The School of Trompe l'Oeil taught me discipline and a certain technique. Over time these have imprisoned me in limiting the freedom of my desires and my creative choices. I managed to free myself from this constraints by radically changing my way of painting on canvas : in 2013, acrylic, knife and abstract expressionism replaced oil, brush, and hyper realism. Frustrated for so many years my creativity has been very productive. Instead of showing everything to the viewer, I now give him a support to daydream based on color harmonies, perspectives, verticals and horizontals witch occupied space without ever clogging it. I introduced recently a new element in the composition of some of my paintings : sand Mixed with glue and used sparingly, it brings particular look in both effects, that in contrast. Still no or very few spheres and circle in my compositions, they break, I think, refinement that I seek and disrupt the harmony and elegance that I wish to give to my paintings ... All my works are protected by a high quality varnish, the edges are painted, usually in black and the paintings are ready to hang. Many thank's for your visit in my gallery .
I was trained in an advanced course of decorative painting in 1995.
I then specialized in trompe l'oeil .
I only began to paint abstract in 2013.
I'm currently exhibiting in my own Galery close to Cahors (Lot, France) and I'm very glad to welcome visitors 7days a week in my workshop-galery.
I've been featuring in the supplement of the British Art Book TALLULAH "15 contemporary artists to watch" in 2016 and I'm also been featuring in the SAATCHI's Catalog 2016.
Some of my paintings are also visible in few restaurants in the south west of France as "Le Balandre" gastronomic restaurant in Cahors(46 Lot France), "Le Moulin des Saveurs" in Barbaste (47 Lot et Garonne), "On passe à table" in Saint Géry (46 Lot).
I made a lot of collective exhibition as well as exhibitions in galeries, the last one was in June July and August 2014 in the Galery "Le Clos d'Epicure" in Cahors.
