Bertrand Fournier French, b. 1985

Overview

Bertrand Fournier (b.1985, Dourdan, France) is a mid-career contemporary visual artist, who is known for his symbolic paintings.

 

Bertrand Fournier discovered painting by chance in 2016, when his mother gave him an empty frame, so he bought a canvas for his daughter to frame one of her drawings. It is by buying the canvas that he decides to also take one for himself in order to try painting.

Later, being advised by a friend, he posts his work on Instagram to expose his work to the public.

 

In 2018, the London gallery The Dot Project spotted his work and offered him an exhibition in duet with the American painter David Matthew King. That same year he was also selected by Bertram de Brock of Galerie Patrick de Brock to auction his canvas "The lonely burning sun" via the Paddle8 platform for the support of the Dhondt-Dhaenens Museum in Deurle, Belgium.

 

He is now represented in Mannheim (Sebastian Fath Contemporary) and London (The Dot Project).
