Jean-Marie Drouet's work is a stunning display of contemporary art at its finest. Born in 1961, Drouet graduated from the Ecole des Beaux Arts but spent 15 years in the world of advertising and publishing before giving it all up to concentrate solely on his paintings. Highly influenced by his years spent perfecting layouts in editorial and photography, his work is a true masterpiece of contemporary art, showcasing the boundless potential of color, form, and composition.
Drouet's impressive range of abstract and figurative paintings are characterized by their bold use of color and striking compositions, highly reminiscent of cinematographic compositions that evoke a sense of stillness. An avid sketcher, Drouet favors highly contrasted colors and minimalistic compositions. His abstract paintings are a sight to behold, with vivid colors blending and contrasting in organic yet deliberate ways, inviting the viewer to lose themselves in the fluid movements and dazzling textures, evoking a sense of wonder and awe.
It's not just the abstract works that make Drouet's art so compelling. His figurative paintings are just as impressive, capturing the human form with a raw and unbridled energy. Drouet's use of color in these works is especially noteworthy, imbuing each figure with a palpable sense of emotion and vitality. His subject matters are often portrayed in blinding sunlight and center around his life by the sea in western France, adding a unique charm and intimacy to his work.
