French Contemporary

Alain Gaudin, born on 26 May 1951 in Nantes, the capital of the French Department Loire-Atlantique and formerly the capital of Brittany, is not a bohemian artist who allows in a smug bourgeois life. In school he studied to be an interior designer and began painting with watercolors in 1970. In the 1980s he quit his job as a designer to work as a full-time artist. Surrounded by Brittany’s natural beauty, and manifestly enjoying it too, he steadily compiles his oeuvre, which has met with international approval by now.

Alain Gaudin, for good reasons, insists on his right not to miss out on the realism in his oeuvre. In his comprehensible art he pursues esthetic beauty through the registration of all kinds of human activity. After all, the fact that his works give delight can only add to their attractive force.
