French painter Thierry de Gorostarzu's canvases are bathed in light and a poetic invitation to reminisce
A beautiful interior, a window open on the sea. You are in front of a painting by Thierry de Gorostarzu. Have you seen the light? It is so bright that if you stay a moment in front of the canvas, you can feel the warmth. Venice, Cap Ferret, the Amalfi Coast... everywhere, the sea. It is on a beach that the Basque painter began to paint. On the sand, facing the sea, Thierry first placed his easel.
Thierry began his artistic adventure late, first setting foot into a studio at the age of 37 to study live model drawing classes. A few years later, he approached oil painting and his talent was very quickly recognised with his first exhibition in 2004 at Saint-Lunaire, Brittany.
Since then, Thierry has attracted a wide following of collectors throughout Europe and recently held his first show in Lebanon. "Beirut, I have no doubt, will only prolong and enrich my obsession with better understanding light" stated Thierry.
