Bastien Ducourtioux was born in 1987 in France. Very early on, he became passionate about the Visual Arts with an attraction for Street Art. Perfecting your technique then becomes a matter of course.
His bias is the portrait. To lead the observer of the composition to penetrate the soul, the intimate, the feelings in all that they have of deepest depth. What must remain secret, unspoken: to reveal it through the play of colours and the variety of techniques used.
Bastien Ducourtioux is a "hunter of emotions". His creations are the result of chance encounters at the bend of a street, a conversation, a situation...
With the knowledge and skills acquired during the years of training, he made his first steps in painting, initially focusing on spray paint and acrylic. He then extended his know-how by working on oil painting. When the brush and knife find their limits. He creates and experiments his own tools. The material is superposed to create relief, to give pleasure to each sense, the eye and the touch.
