Paul Alexis Biography

Paul Alexis is a French artist born in 1947.

He has spent the majority of his life travelling if not to find a spiritual harmony then to understand his art and technique all the more fervently. His artwork is a superposition of multiple painted metal sheets. Sometimes it is Ghandi that lurks in the painterly shadows, sometimes Marilyn Monroe.

Any viewer that passes his artwork stops, looks again, stands back and then is driven by the intrigue that it promotes.  Is there a figure there? Or is it an illusion in paint? Preferring to work in large formats, Alexis allows his works to engulf the viewer, pure colour and obscure and ghostly forms, with the joy of recognition within a few blissful moments of intrigue.What makes his art so intriguing too is the fact that he toys with camera obscura to exceedingly clever ends.

Paul Alexis is not only a talented artist himself but the president of the Salon Comparaisons of Paris, the institution that showcased the greatest artists of recent centuries, Yves Klein, Arman, Niki de Saint Phalle and Serge Poliakoff.
