ALEXIS DIGART

Landscapes and Seascapes

Alexis Digart moved to Paris in 1974 and began his studies at E.N.S.B.A. (Ecole Nationale Superieure Des Beaux Arts).

In 1979, he received his diploma in Architecture (Architecte D.P.L.G.). While studying architecture he also attended workshops in 'Arts Plastiques' (painting, sculpture) with teachers such as Carrade, Marchandour, Corbato and Dalla Valee.

During his time as a student at E.N.S.B.A. (1974-1979) he was also professionally engaged in painting (mainly watercolour paintings and pastel portraits), working at the Place du Tertre (Paris). His watercolour paintings and portraits from this period already belong to private collections.

In later years (2011 / 2012), with new tools provided by digital technology, Alexis Digart focused again on his favorite themes (mostly landscapes) directly on the screen of the PC. He works mainly through his imagination or memory, using a variety of digital painting software.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Every piece of my paintings is an original and unique work of art.

These paintings are digitally painted by me using a variety of digital design and painting software and they are unique and not a reproduction or photo manipulation.

I work mainly through my imagination (abstract expressionism) or memory ( landscapes- seascapes- harbors- cityscape of impressionist or expressionist style ) or sometimes I retouch digitally some of my old drawings, paintings and portraits.

PHOTOGRAPHY / DIGITAL PAINTING

A Digital Playground

by Jennifer Esteban

"I'm originally from the Patagonia region of Argentina. I moved to Los Angeles when I was 6 and spent a large amount of my earlier years working in my father's studio/shop helping him with projects. My father is a 'jack-of-all-trades, master-of-all' type and he worked mainly in 3D art. He taught me how to be a good craftsman, how to pay attention to detail, catch imperfections, and have the patience to do the work right. When I was around 10, I told him that I was bored just watching him work and I asked him for things to do. He handed me a box of paint, a couple of brushes, and some miniatures. He said 'Paint these and then bring them to me.' I did, and he gave me more. I painted solely on 3D surfaces for the next few years.

"I was always interested in learning, and I was strongly attracted to creative things. I began with music at 8, acting at 9, painting at 10-years-old, crafting at 16, dancing and modeling at 17, jewelry-making at 18, photography at 19, costume-making at 20, piano at 23, leather-making at 24. Oh! The list WILL go on! I, too, consider myself a jack-of-all-trades and my passion lies in simultaneously putting time into all of my skills. I'll jump to the camera while the paint is drying and when my eyes hurt I'll sit at the piano, etc. I live my life by cycling and giving 100% to everything I do.

"I consider photography the medium which I have put the most time and energy into. I would consider painting my 2nd main medium; although I started painting years before I picked up a SLR camera, painting is much more personal to me; it's a meditation without any expectations. It's where I can completely be myself; no limitations other than time.

"As for everything else that I've practiced, have no fear, I will continue to practice all of these things for the rest of my life. In the meantime I will work on creating a harmonious existence between all of my passions and myself."

PETER MC LANE

Peter Mc Lane, despite his name, is a Frenchman, born in Chamonix, France, in 1945. He grew up in Alsace.

He says his technique "cannot be related to another," but confesses his respect and admiration for the traditional painters of the past, including the surrealists. He says he is influenced by Hieronymus Bosch, Tanguy, Dali and Max Ernst.

He now lives in Vence on the south coast of the Riviera, where he shares his time between virtual art and old cars. He says in English, "My work is only through my imagination, no scanned images, only a white screen and using the stylus and a Wacom Tablet like a painter."

His first career was as a singer, with 25 years of showbizz, stage, television shows, fifteen records as well as receiving the honour of representing Monaco in the 1972 Eurovision Song Contest.

In 1987 Peter Mc Lane realised his other passion and talent as a painter. Working in his studio in Paris for 10 years, he created his first images for companies such as Dassault, Aerospatiale, Sony Music, Renault and Lucent Technologies as well as advertising companies, combining the passion of a researcher and the skill of a technician, boldly wielding his new tool. Peter is now celebrating 28 years of digital creation.

Rewarded on several occasions, he was invited to inaugurate the first multimedia exhibition at the Paris Fair in 1999, an event showcasing plasma screens which are now part of our daily lives.

Peter Mc Lane took part in the first digital art section at the Florence Biennale in Italy in 2009.

His works are 100% digital, output on canvas using the 'Giclée' method.
