Yves Calméjane’s representational landscape paintings are in the true tradition of Provençal painting. The artist found his own style while studying masterpieces and spending time with many other artists in their workshops in the South of France. “This lengthy intuitive journey has led me to dream of a world where art is viewed and created in an entirely different way…”, he said in the introduction to his book Secret.
Brimming with Nature’s gifts, his canvases hint at impressionism in their rendering. The thick strokes seem to melt into humble landscapes in a somewhat spirited manner. And the plain colors radiate simplicity. An inner light permeates his paintings like a presence.
Yves Calméjane paints from life, grinds his pigments and coats his own paintings.
Born in 1956, the French painter Yves Calméjane studied at the school of fine arts in Nantes and Paris and exhibits his art in numerous French galleries. He also participates in exhibitions in Asia, specifically China, as in the Hong-Kong and Guangzhou International Fairs and the Flower City Art Museum. Many of his works can be found in private collections.
Yves Calméjane has also written books on art, such as Secret, which retraces the fundamentals of the art of painting.
