I present to you " PICASSO, THE MINOTAUR " (80x80cm) The blood of Guernica runs in my veins... Antonia, my grandmother is at the market of Guernica, on April 26, 1937. A rumour is circulating about a probable attack, so she decides not to linger. The first planes arrive at 5:30 p.m., first with machine-gun fire, then with explosive bombs and finally, they pour 60 tons of incendiary bombs. The last planes leave the sky of Guernica around 8 pm after 2h30 of bombardment, there is nothing left. My grandmother is alive, she left everything and walks towards France. This painting modestly takes some elements of the great master and in particular the minotaur, nickname of Picasso. Guernica will remain in my eyes and in my heart, the greatest work of the 20th century.

A traveler, Philippe Viejo discovered the four corners of the world in his youth on board a family boat built with his father. A first trip marked by the chaotic movements of the sea, by the saturated colours of distant countries and by the practice of high level apnea for more than fifteen years in Martinique. During this journey, he kept the taste for adventure that he shares today with his wife and children: several "road trips" in Eastern Europe, USA, Canada. The crossing of the Americas from Tierra del Fuego to Alaska from July 2016 to August 2017.

Very early on, painting burst into his life. His teachers detected his talent and encouraged him to enrol in a National School of Fine Arts. The young man refines his knowledge of the different techniques. At the age of 20, he made his first exhibition in the south of France. About twenty figurative paintings are exhibited. They are all sold and he wins the Ingres Prize. Other regional and national awards will follow. Today, he proposes a mature and accomplished painting, the figurative gradually fades into a personal representation of the world embodied by matter, movement and colour.

Paintings of the journey, journeys of painting, his paintings tell both the world from the outside and the inside. The one the artist saw. The one who made him a man. A contemplative work that describes the beauty of the world and the richness of its mysteries. And that pushes the viewer to question himself on his own path. Because, to propose such a vision of the world, you must have really lived. Better yet, you have to have chosen your life well.
