BRUNEAU was born in 1972 in Brest, after spending more than 15 years abroad (Ivory Coast, Morocco, Spain), he settled in France, in Lyon, to train in graphic design and illustration.
He has been painting since 1993, and is as much influenced by contemporaries of the Chinese school, as by artists from the street art and illustrators such as Enki Bilal. He would describe his abstract paintings as pareidolia or the art of seeing familiar faces or shapes in a landscape.
He works by accident, without having defined the final image in advance. The full and empty spaces in his compositions, which are often pierced by light, may remind us of the many cloudy changes in the sky that he likes to observe. If he does not give names to his paintings, it is precisely in order not to influence the gaze and to let imagination and reverie run free.
Finally, through his play of colors, and this omnipresent red as a thread of his work, he seeks to move the canvas and make it alive as palpable emotions.
