Ludovic Thiriez is a French artist who lives and works in Budapest, Hungary. His painting focuses on childhood, he explores this period of life, with its truths, emotions, contrasts, and transitions.
His painting is a kind of accumulation of images, experiences and ideas. Ludovic Thiriez likes to say that he organizes his compositions like a "cake" formed by several layers, which we savor like a perfect bite. His superimpositions of elements tell stories. His stories mix reality, fairy tales and surrealism. On the canvas, abstract brushstrokes mix with figuration.
Nature and animals have an essential place in her paintings. The discovery of Brazil and the Amazon pushed him to include nature in his compositions.
Ludovic Thiriez's paintings are out of time and out of a defined space, the artist deliberately relocates his subjects to make the spectators travel. Ludovic Thiriez explores a world both strange and fantastic.
He has been living in Budapest for more than ten years. Hungarian culture has been an important source of inspiration for him, especially the Hungarian embroideries that are passed on from generation to generation.
In 2018, he won the prestigious Luxembourg Art Prize.
Some of Ludovic Thiriez's works are kept in private collections in France, Great Britain, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Spain, Sweden, Brazil, Portugal, Turkey, New Zealand and Luxembourg...
