Jean Kevorkian was born Paris on 7th May 1933. Kevorkian is one of France’s more successful contemporary painters. He is self taught and began painting at an early age, encouraged by his parents. His last name suggests Armenian roots, but his life and education have been entirely French.

Many years of his life have been spent in Brittany, in the region of St Malo and Cape Finistere, which has developed his interest and talent in marine subjects. His particular skill in conveying the atmosphere of the changing seasons distinguishes his work: The Ile de France, the banks of the Seine and Oise in Autumn and Winter are favourite themes.

He has received many prizes for his paintings in France, including Firsts in 1978, 1980 and 1981 with a ‘Diplome d’Honneur’ in 1980. Exhibitions of his paintings have been mainly in Paris and the provinces of France although examples of his work can be found in private collections in many countries. More on Jean Kevorkian
