French artist were always considered to be the most talented and tasteful artist throughout the whole art history. The greatest art movement Impressionism was exactly born in Paris and it started the amazing manner that is highly popular even in the present time. The unique set of colours, soft and cheerful mood and the exceptional usage of the light will always be the main feature of the Impressionism artists.
When I think about the contemporary French art, the first name that comes into my mind is Laurent Parcelier. The feature that distinguishes him from the other artists is the excellent work with the light. The main topic of his pictures is a landscape that is picture with the generous usage of different colors. This topic was chosen because of the origin of the artist. He was born in 1962 in Chamalières, so the South of France is served as biggest inspiration for his works.
But the main feature of his works is the way he plays with the lights and shadows, making the sun rays as the unique part that draws the most of attention. One can notice that the artist was mainly interested in the technique and style of Impressionists adding something personal to create own unique style.
