Biography of the artist

Fresque street art sur la voûte d'une église par l'artiste Amaury Dubois

Street art fresco on the vault of a church by the artist Amaury Dubois

 

French painter, he likes to paint life in movement. From a room covered with graffiti to contemporary paintings visible in the 4 corners of the world, he offers works full of life and colours, all marked by his signature: "Courbisme". Amaury Dubois is a painter who depicts the world around him in his own way.

 

Botany and light, a decisive source of inspiration

Born in 1980, very early Amaury Dubois develops a pronounced taste for Art in all its forms. A true "jack-of-all-trades": music, writing, drawing, painting, he chose painting as a way to channel and express the permanent abundance of ideas that springs from his mind. Passionate about botany, he finds in the curves of plants a limitless source of inspiration that he distills into each of his artworks.

 

Color, to symbolise his way of seeing the world

The genesis of Amaury Dubois' art lies at the meeting point of his years, feeding off the colours of the street on his skateboard during the day, and between the pages of art history books in the evening. His curve creates this visible link, like a lifeline between Free Figuration, Abstraction and Street art, a way to link and explore his influences. His style allows him the freedom to travel through the history of art; from Hans Memling to Jon One.

 

The artist doesn't consider himself a street artist, a studio artist or any other label, but just an artist who uses colour to explore his passion for art. No matter the medium. Amaury Dubois does not allow himself to be put on the shelves of an artistic movement, his plural work does not fit into any box. Since his beginnings, he has never stopped exploring mediums, escaping boredom and creative comfort by multiplying universes with the help of his curve, his lifeline between the reality of the surface and the depths of the imagination...


A talent acclaimed by the art world and the international press

Europe, USA, Brazil, Singapore, Middle East... project after project, Amaury Dubois exports his talent throughout the world. His works are exhibited in several galleries around the world, and cohabit with the greatest contemporary artists in many European and international collections. 

In 2020, he takes a new dimension and transforms the interior of a 19th century church into a unique 600m2 street art fresco. After Picasso, Matisse or Okuda, Amaury Dubois joins the very closed circle of contemporary artists having realized this extraordinary performance. His style aroused the curiosity of the media, which painted a glowing portrait of an artist who is always on the move. Ideat, France 2, le Figaro, M6, Geo Magazine, Elle Déco, have highlighted him. A media coverage relayed in particular by the front page of "Art magazine" and the 1st page of "Beaux Art Magazine".

« Freeze the time to observe life doing its work »


« Courbisme » symbol of life and movement

Nothing is fixed, everything evolves, transforms. The elements interact with each other constantly. From the moon to the tides, from the bee to the flower, nature is in constant motion, driven by an invisible but very real energy that is more powerful than anything else. It is this instinct of life that Amaury Dubois reveals in his canvases with powerful and colored curves, a unique and recognizable artistic signature among all, which he baptizes "curvature". Like flames, waves or climbing plants seeking to progress in the canvas, the curves intermingle in a rhythmic dance of gradations, luminous and bewitching. Each line is skilfully structured, measured and reflected like a revelation of the mysteries of life.
