Old Masters and exposure to historic places like France’s Gallo-Roman ruins and Gothic churches inspired Francois Fressinier’s figurative, symbolic artwork. He cites artists like Rembrandt, Van Dyke, Bonnard, and Fuchs for influencing his style today.
Francois Fressinier was born in France in 1968 to photographer parents. His father appreciated the Old Masters and Francois' exposure to historic places like France's Gallo-Roman ruins and Gothic churches inspired figurative, symbolic artwork. He was educated at the Ecole Brassart in Tours where he studied drawings and paintings of old and new masters.
He cites artists like Rembrandt, Van Dyke, Bonnard, and Fuchs for influencing his style today. He has stated, 'Art is something you cultivate; it is alive! My joy of painting is to listen to the piece and to have a discussion with it. Each one has its own personality'. Fressinier's process involves a bit of sketching, but he finds greater pleasure in being alone in his studio. He visits museums, galleries, art libraries to expand his inspiration. He enjoys spending time with his two children, gardening, reading, and playing guitar. He credits his wife, Colette, and his faith as muse and motivation for his work. He has been exhibited and collected throughout the US and abroad.
