Michel GILIBERTI is an artist, musician, photographer and writer born in 1950 in Tunisia.
At the age of 12, he began to copy masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance such as masters as Sandro Botticelli. In 1966, he began an artistic career at the Beaux Arts in Toulon, but eventually turned to musical writing. He recorded three albums from 1976 to 1981.
Meanwhile, Giliberti has not given up on pictorial creation and continue at the same time to practice painting with an aesthetic that express a pure reality and without artifice.
In 1999, he published his first novel which is the extension of his pictorial work. In addition to his gifts for music and painting, Giliberti is also passionate about poetry, a component, for him, inseparable from painting.
The artist often wonders about the ephemeral, the transience or uselessness of humans actions, about the alternation of pain and pleasure, but he keeps a critical and funny eye on our society, our failings, our nonsense. -said and our little lies, ‘everything that writes life’. His committed writing, sometimes harsh and cruel, but most often mocking, retains the amazed spontaneity of a child curious about everything.
“In my paintings, I try to highlight our flaws, our disorders, our weaknesses as well. These themes have always troubled me. The enchantment as much as the abuse of colors is not material to inspire me. I don’t attach more importance to the decor; it must not interfere with my characters who alone must create the emotion.”
Today, this established artist, offers us a plurality of artworks presented internationally. There are no less than six novels, a play, a collection of poetry and a dozen art books devoted to his pictorial work.
