Jules de Balincourt
Jules de Balincourt is a 46 year old French-American painter who lives between Brooklyn, Costa Rica and Paris. His palette borrows its tone from the Fauvist expressionists as well as from psychedelic painters.
His strong colors and free forms can be as enchanting as they are disturbing. His universe - the innumerable details of the cities he paints, his trees with their endless branches, the eerie vegetation of his virgin forests, his interiors where the furniture seems alive - is sometimes reminiscent of the British painter Peter Doig. Even if he defends himself: "I try to overcome the darkness by painting the light."
