Yann Rebecq

His art

Yann Rebecq was largely inspired to see the world differently throughout his many travels in his youth. He acquired a taste for vivid lights and colours while staying in the Pacific. Back in the South of France, he was student and friend to two renowned artists, Eugène Baboulène and Henri Pertus. And became familiar with Vincent van Gogh’s paintings. He also admired the work of Paul Gauguin, Edouard Vuillard, Pierre Bonnard and Claude Monet. His own landscapes and indoor scenes are immersed in light and poetry, and a Taoist quality. As a colourist, his subtle choice of hues teeter on the edge of the surreal…

“If I were to compare abstract painting with representational painting, I’d say abstraction is imbued with emotions, both pure and intense, as in jazz or classical music. As for representational painting, it is as luminous and colourful an expression as poetry written into song.”

His life

Born in 1955, Yann Rebecq spent much of his young years in New Caledonia and the South Pacific. He began exhibiting his paintings in 1978 and was awarded an international prize three years later. Since then, his work has been shown in many art galleries in France and Noumea, in the United States, Korea and China. Twenty-five of his paintings were bought by China and set up in Chinese museums in 2013. Some of his work can also be found in public collections all over the world. Passionate about culture and its sway over human experience – its innate power to magnify any given place – Yann Rebecq was, as often as he could, a promoter of the arts whilst working in tourism.
