DIDIER MEYNARD

Paris, FR

Biography

Born in 1960 in Bar-le-Duc (Meuse), Didier Meyard approached the art world through the work of Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso, Pieter Brueghel and Rembrandt. In 1980 he moved to Paris and, inspired by the Dalí exhibition at the Centre Pompidou, started to devote himself to painting. Author of a refined artistic language, the painter is known for his innate creative talent and his ability to range from painting to photography and engraving. Thanks to his polished artistic mind, Didier Meynard has exhibited his work in many cultural events like the Salon des Indépendants (Grand Palais – Paris, 1987, 1986), the well-known annual art exhibition which was attended in the past by Paul Cézanne, Marcel Duchamp, Henri Matisse, Edvard Munch, Diego Rivera, Henri Rousseau, Georges Seurat, Paul Signac and Vincent van Gogh. "My works echo the suffering of victims of discrimination, injustice and the denial of human rights. In response to social chaos, to the bankruptcy of humanist values, I feel the urge to gather my strength. By mobilizing my knowledge of classical techniques (glazing, rigour of composition and golden number) I play my score on the canvas in total freedom. The colours in their sumptuousness and refinement accentuate the poetry. I am constantly in search of nuances and harmony of tones, which is why I make my paintings from natural pigments and some of my brushes".
