Journeys Over Land And Sea


The painter Vincent Besnard presents his solo exhibition entitled ” Journeys Over Land and Sea ” in the “” gallery in Halandri , Athens from Friday April 4, 2014 until Friday, June 6, 2014 .

The artist , who is of French descent , has traveled around the world capturing moments with a unique structured perception . A man with excellent music and art education , Mr. Besnard conveys his sensations, feelings and visions through his own personal style of painting .

Living in Greece for more than twelve years, Vincent Besnard travels all around the Mediterranean and the countries surrounding it and transfers images from the places he visits with a surprisingly artful and colorful dynamism .

His works stand out for their explosive color , the movement and musicality that follows every brush stroke as well as the mixture of anticipation , nostalgia , joy and optimism that is created to the viewer . In this exhibition , the artist presents works from a set of themes such as landscapes blooming with tulips , images of the sea , and historic cities bathed in light .

Like an authentic French traveler whose love for Greece and the world urges him to walk in the footsteps of his older compatriots , Vincent Besnard manages to deliver an admirable expressionist lyricism in images like the light of Attica that falls on a minimalist Acropolis , filtered through the immortal vegetation of Lycabettus hill .

At the same time , he manages to capture a blazing Istanbul in such a unique way , as the city is surrendered to the night , with the painter gradually drifting , summoned to tread the crossroads of cultures .
