Born in 1949 in the Adennes, Jean-Paul Surin joined the Ecole des Beaux-Arts after demonstrating his passion in art. His painting is powerful, soft, vigorous as well as subtle. The artist loves taking his inspiration from atmospheres, odours, colours in order to give lightness and matter to his work. Also, it is a return to natural beauty of nature. Surin is an oustanding landscaper, drawing his inspiration from various subjects such as Breton shores, Paris in autumn, provincial countryside or even Morocco.His landscapes overflow motions and lightness. His canvas, curved in the matter, combine classic style with nearly abstraction. His art work is exhibited all over in France and jumps over boundaries to delight those who appreciate it. He is part of the Galerie Mickael Marciano permanent artists’ selection.
