    About Me

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    A naturalist painter, author of numerous books devoted to the great natural regions of the planet, also an engraver and sculptor. Born in 1958 in France, living in Geneva, Eric is a gold medalist for French animal artists, laureate of the Fondation de la Vocation, member of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators of the United States.

    His painted works employ a variety of techniques, including watercolor, ink, drawing, and oil and acrylic paint. Some large works also use gold leaf. We can apply Cézanne's phrase to this artist: "It is not so much nature that interests me as the forces of nature." By contemplating and studying the animals, the flora and the landscape, Eric shares a look that is both poetic and realistic on the wild world - a look that challenges man and his often irresponsible behavior towards the environment, because it has become insensitive. Some magnificent portraits of inhabitants of the regions visited or details of the historical heritage extend and complete the evocation of the world of the mountains or the desert. Certain oriental inspirations as well as the influence of lyrical abstraction give to his representations of wild life, with its forms and rhythms, a singular intensity and depth. The line, like the colors, magnifies the fruit of patient observation, both by bringing it back to the essential and by projecting it elsewhere.

    His works have been the subject of several exhibitions, notably at the Natural History Museums of Geneva and Paris. They are present in public and private collections.
    HOW IT WORKS ? 1. Each week, you will receive 1 video of about 60 min, linked to a theme including demonstrations made by myself, and exercises to do at home. 2. You will have 1 week to practice, and send me your watercolors by email. 3. Your paintings will be corrected and analyzed in a separate video that will be sent to you. I ask for a minimum commitment for one term, i.e. 12 lessons.

    Art Class on painting techniques, colour and more.
    The class will explore and experience a variety of painting techniques, media, and historical approaches to art. Painting is a problem-solving class dealing with form, colour, line, and texture (figurative and abstract). Students will be taught in a workshop format that is based on assignments from the instructor. This class will help them discover their creativity, individuality and unique style. They will begin to work toward building an original body of work that can be used as a portfolio that will include paintings, drawings and mixed media art.

    Individual artistic lessons – professional, individual
    Finding your own artistic expression or access is an experimental adventure, because everyone brings different requirements and talents. These first need to be thoroughly examined and then developed in a targeted manner – but also with great sensitivity. It doesn't matter whether you want to learn a certain technique or theoretically underpin and classify your previous work, whether you are primarily interested in self-knowledge and the discovery of your creative potential, or whether you want to gain more access to and fundamental knowledge of contemporary art - whatever is always your concern, I am happy to support you. As a busy academic artist who has been working professionally for a good twenty years, I can convey numerous techniques in the areas of painting, graphics, sculpture and performance. In an initial discussion, we analyze the personal reasons for your artistic interest and any artistic goals. Accordingly, I develop an individual curriculum that suggests both practical and content (eg literature tips) - a range of courses from which you alone can choose, because only you can ultimately know where the journey should go. Arrange an initial consultation with me in my studio in the 6th district in Vienna or via Skype. I look forward to meeting you!

    Drawing and painting class for beginners. Learn about Art History
    Art is an expression of how you want to present yourself to the world. In this class we will discuss the history of art through the ages, and how modern artworks today are influenced. We will then have a go at making our own pieces from what you have learnt. This class is for beginners, not for experts, so there is no judgement about what you want to create. Materials have to be bought by you, however there will be clear guidance on what the upcoming lesson will be about, and what materials are required. I will never be anything out of reach as this is a beginner level class.

    Art & Creativity: From basic skills to elaborating narratives
    I am a multidisciplinary artist and designer with fifteen years of experience. I studied art and architecture at the École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and the Columbia University in New York. I teach painting, drawing, digital image and creativity. This class is ideal for beginners but also intermediate students who want to develop their own style. For my personal projects, I work in a wide range of mediums, from drawing, painting and printmaking to digital image and 3D Printing. When teaching, I prefer to first focus on free-hand drawing and painting as this allows for greater spontaneity regardless of the student's technical level. We later explore other methods based on the student's individual interests. I like to teach children and adults via mini projects involving art history references and help them develop narratives around their work. I deeply believe in people's creative potential and in my classes will help you channel your own voice.

    MENTORING IN ARTS : Discover how to say something through your artistic work.
    I am a visual artist born in Barcelona, settled in Belgium since 2017. As an artist I have accumulated experience for the last 25 years. I am graduated with an Academic Bachelor in Fine Arts in the University of Barcelona and graduated as a Master in Visual Arts at Sint Lucas School of Arts in Antwerpen. I am specialised in painting, drawing, experimental films, installations, language, sound and curating. In other words, I am a multidisciplinary artist. I understand the artistic practice as a way to understand ourselves and the situations which surrounds us. In my classes I don't teach how to do Art, but as how to say something through your artistic work. With me you can work independently, with a coach who will challenge you with some assignments and giving feedback to your personal concerns. In addition, you will learn how to work with several mediums, preparing your own material: paintings, canvases, and so on. You will not only receive individual coaching but as encourage you to look other artists or take into account other references connected with your concerns. Finding, discussing and retaking solutions together are the core of my classes.
