LE PLAN DE LA TOUR (83), France
Self-taught painter, Alain Rolland was born in 1947 in Bourgoin-Jallieu (Isère, France) where his first exhibits were launched at the Salon des Amis des Arts.
Working independently since 1977, Rolland settled in Lyon where he made art for advertising agencies, which were numerous at the time. Through an intermediary in Paris, he specialised in illustrations of animals, often for commercial packaging. He also illustrated all of the flora and fauna pages for the famous French dictionary Larousse. Rolland learned to paint in many styles and worked on a publicity campaign for Swiss cheeses. All of this was done while painting portraits for clients in his free time.
