Bio / Resumee / Statement:
virtual art gallery
Alexis Digart was born in Piraeus (Greece).
In 1974, he moved to Paris 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 (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 across the world.
The last three years, with new tools provided by digital technology,
Alexis focuses again on his favorite themes (mostly Greek landscapes )
directly on the screen of the PC. He works mainly through his
imagination or memory of the splendid landscapes of his beloved country,
using a variety of digital painting software.
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
of the splendid landscapes of my beloved country (landscapes-seascapes
of impressionist or expressionist style ) or sometimes I retouch
digitally some of my old drawings, paintings and portraits.
