Patrice Murciano

Patrice Murciano was born in Belfort in 1969. He moved to Montpellier from an early age.

Passion for art early on, it first replicate the characters in comics since the age of 6 years, then he continues to paint his first muses (who at the time dummies fashion magazine) to the age of 8 years with the makeup of his mother he places on the reverse side of tapestry rollers abandoned in the attic. He exhibited his first painting at age 12 in a group exhibition. Inspired by the romantic nude photographer David Hamilton, he shall cease to paint the naked veiled himself up to get into the picture at the age of 16. For eighteen years he participated in a group show organized by “Arts and Letters in France” where he received the medal hopes of the young. It leaves out the paint for a few years to devote himself to do the photo, portraits, nude, fashion …

 Patrice is mainly interested in the woman and the erotic. This woman “muse” he resumed painting in 1996 with a style he calls “Courbisme” (nod to Cubism of Picasso, who is part of the great masters of painting, with Basquiat and Pollock, inspired Patrice ), but above all a tribute to the curves of the woman, Female colorful shapes that he exaggerates.

Patrice destroyed and recomposed the woman he wants to “perfect” in this balance of lines, curves and bright colors. 

In 2010 he exhibited for the first time his paintings “Courbisme” in galleries (Gallery Concorde in Paris), 2011 will follow in other galleries in the provinces but also a museum in Bahia, Brazil MAC, where he will make a donation in June in 2011. Will follow in 2012 a gallery in Brussels and another in Shanghai.
