Jean Paul Beattry

 


The dynamic and colorful paintings of Jean Paul Beattry are instantly recognizable the world over. Born in 1958 in southern France, Beattry has drawn a life-long inspiration from painting fragments of daily life, culture and environment that once characterized bourgeois life on the French Mediterranean coast. Each painting is suffused with the golden sunlight and vibrant colors typical of the Mediterranean.

Beattry's cityscapes recall a simpler life of lazy, sun-drenched afternoons at the cafe and beach or a stroll down an empty picturesque alley. His still lifes--richly draped tables topped with fruit, lush flowers, and teacups--are vibrantly rendered in brilliant colors reminiscent of both the post-Impressionists and Fauvists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Indeed, Beattry acknowledges these influences as his constant muse. "Like van Gogh and Gauguin, my paintings are about mood and expression. And I try to express that mood through the movement and spatial arrangement of color." says Beattry.

Beattry draws daily inspiration from his meanderings through the villages of southern France, capturing bits and pieces of a disappearing world.
