Louis Magre was born in Paris in 1955. As a teenager, he studied drawing and architecture, which he gradually gave up to concentrate solely on drawing. He currently lives in Provence, an area which fascinates him and which he loves to admire and paint.

At the beginning of his career, he drew nudes and portraits in charcoal; later, as a fan of impressionist painters including Sisley, Pissaro, Monet and Seurat, he began to paint his local landscapes. Following in the footsteps of Cézanne and Van Gogh, he depicts cloudless skies, green olive trees, blooming flowers and Provencal farmhouses, transporting us into the world of Marcel Pagnol. Particularly contemplative when it comes to landscapes, he has also painted windy beaches in Brittany, flower-covered dunes in Normandy, the streets of Little Italy and the neon signs of Chinatown in New York, where he lived for three years.

His artwork is a journey through some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world, leaving observers of his work filled with wonder at the sensory experience created by nature. Increasingly, he has focused on choosing materials when creating his artwork to represent the undulating shapes of the countryside which he loves so much.

Since 2007, he has exhibited his work at the Arts and Regards gallery in Pessac, Gironde, Les Baux-de-Provence, Saint-Paul-de-Vence and many other galleries in France. More on Louis Magre
