Discover the new exhibition of the Sebastian Art Center.
The first watercolor biennial took place in 2009 with Janine Gallizia from Australia and Ewa Karpinska from Poland.
Both living in France, presented a modern watercolor, fresh, dusted of the didacts of traditional watercolor
It was a great discovery and above all a great success.
Since then, every 2 years the Art Center proposes a new edition of the Watercolor Biennial composed of foreign artists, rare in France and especially all different in techniques and subjects.
Thus since 2009 in 7 biennials we have presented artists ambassadors of 14 countries, (Australia, France, Canada, Spain, China, India, Brazil, Bulgaria, USA, Great Britain, Belgium, Japan, Peru, Malaysia).
This year 2023 we present 5 watercolorists of different origins: Eudes Correia from Brazil, André Hominal from Switzerland, Michal Jusiewicz from Poland, Oléna Klimenko from Ukraine and Stéphane Langeron from France.
All of them live in immersion in the world that surrounds them and that they travel through.
The artists In the works of André Hominal and Stéphane Langeron, nature is the subject; between earth and sky, water infuses life with colors and arouses the imagination.
Poetry is invited in the interpretations of Michal Jasiewicz, a traveling artist who, along his way, insinuates poetry in urban atmospheres. There he meets Eudes Correia, explorer of the human being, in a juxtaposition of urban and rural atmosphere, which harvests the furtive meetings.
His artistic approach leads him to capture the subject on the spot, expressing his personality, always remaining true to his own nature.
There is a particular emotion in meeting Olena Klimenko, Ukrainian artist. The original look, real artistic overview of the subjects treated, invites us with evidence to take a step back on the world. The balance of the subjects and the colors sing the poetry of the world.
And we find somewhere, the rare lucidity of Anatole France who, since 1894, had expressed this universal thought: "The artist must love life and show us that it is beautiful. Without him, we would doubt it".
