Pierre-Marie Brisson

Date of birth : 1955

Country : France

Born in Orléans, France
 
Brisson’s origins in a farming family and his childhood interest in archaeology left a lasting mark on the artist. A journey to Italy brought him in contact with Etruscan art. Jewellery, tombs and above all frescos influenced his work. The surface of his paintings is cracked, with bold but faded colours, blurred drawings that merge into the canvas.
