IN A FEW WORDS :
Amaury Dubois was born in 1980.
He is an french artist painter who followed a 4 years course at St Luc Institute, Tournai, Belgium.,
in graphic design.
From a bedroom/studio covered up with graffiti to colorful paintings, art photography, Fine art prints, and sculptures, this is the story of a man, Amaury Dubois, from Lille in France. A man who paints life in motion.
His work is exhibited in different art galleries across Europe, but some of his pieces are also part to many European and international art collections (in France Belgium, Luxembourg, Holland Switzerland Portugal Brazil USA …)
Another outstanding fact, Amaury Dubois now sets his art in major design and construction projects. He has worked along with Mercedes Benz and has created a unique design for one particular Smart car.
Following this experience he sees again bigger when working closely with the architects and designers from NORPAC, a subsidiary company of Bouygues Telecom, at Lille stadium, for the project “Grand Stade de Lille – Communaute Urbaine de Lille”, where he paints 40 pieces of artwork in buildings surrounded the stadium. He aslo created an Art photography for the vip area of the Grand stade.
Interested and always questioning the world we live in, everything becomes inspiring. He developed at a very young age an interest in architecture, botanic astronomy, history, literature and music. A thirst for knowledge, which became the foundation of his oil painting on canvas today.
We can surely recognize some inspiration from the surrealism mixed to the cubism but Amaury Dubois talks about
“Courbimes” (curvism) for his Contemporary painting.
Because nothing is straight in real life. Because he has decided to break straight lines. Because revolts cannot support straightness. Because his art has been fulfilled with a passion for everything that is fluid, liquid, aqueous, pictorial synthesis of his own way to see the world, a place full of references…
ARTISTIC PHILOSOPHY :
« To Show the invisible, yet surrounding us ».
The movement of air, fluids, water, wind, light, all these energies we come across daily and in which we are walking and swimming in constantly. We are always drenched in atoms in movements. We are not glued to an object or a place but are in constant mutations.
Each second atoms are living our bodies to go and create something new somewhere else, and they instantly get replaced by other ones. My work reveals this symbiosis in which man and world become one...
NEWSPAPERS & MAGAZINES :
"An oasis of talent placed above a desert of mediocrity. Everyone who is use to go see contemporary art exhibitions is forced to notice that the world of fine contemporary art is in decline. It gets more and more similar to a human growing sickly from a lack of creativity originality and sincerity. A copies B who gets inspired by C who himself copies A, all gathered in a saddening hotchpotch: they call it conceptual art while they have no clue of who truly is that Arte Povera child, because for a while they can make the public believe they are exceptional genius when exhibiting the wheel of a tractor framed between 2 table legs nailed down to a board.
Others offer bronze sculptures, made from a plaster cast prefabricated and visitors are amazed by the detail of the work.
Fortunately, inside this mess, authentic artists dare to share with us, with a calm and clear voice, what they feel and what move them. Amaury Dubois is one of them. You will discover this artist while losing yourself into his undeniable sense of creativity. He offers oil paintings on canvas that would make you believe his world has more dimensions than ours.
Amaury Dubois is using layers from different worlds to offer creations you will need to deeply jump into to measure the subtlety of his work, where culture and science meet humour and sagacity.
Each piece of his work has been delicately created, no precipitation, no haste in his gesture.
Obviously a pictorial story written with a hand guided with method and balance. The subtle details testify of a surprising maturity for such a young artist, without heavy indigestive and pretentious repetitions.
No straight forward slogan or word, What he has chosen to share with us, he shares it with courtesy, civility, using sentences organised in colourful strophes, that can only lead us to reflexion.
One thing is sure: Once the art system will decide to talk about artists before their name appear in the necrology section of our newspaper, Amaury Dubois will still be around.
Let’s not forget what we witness today and consider as real talent, is only the beginning of a future success.
