Alain was born and raised in Paris. With 12, he attended classes at the Louvre studio, this experience determined his artistic direction. With 16, he entered the Graphic Arts School of Corvisart. At the end of his studies, he began to paint and lives thanks to small food jobs.
He exhibited at the Autumn Art Fair at the Grand Palais. Several years would go by before he would realise the importance of painting in his life and decide to make it his career. Around the age of 40, he leaves Paris and settles in Bretagne to finally devote himself to his passion.
Alain works with palette knife painting on canvas, paper or wood. To create his landscapes he uses construction spatulas, which are wider and more rigid than traditional art knives.
He draws his inspiration from his travels (Italy, Greece, Algeria, Tunisia) and the places where he has lived (Paris, Bretagne). He transforms his memories into uninhabited theatrical scenery. His works can be considered as a travel journals. With his mind full of images, he creates light, ambiances and atmospheres in his studio.
