Born in 1961, Remi Bourquin currently lives and works in Paris. The inspiration for his painting comes from his wide travels around the world. His favorite subjects are zoo animals. Bourquin is drawn to animals and the emotions that he experiences while he observes them.
The animals of Rémi Bourquin are filled with a benevolent power. In regards the painting technique used, everything is controlled. The result is a real sense of tranquility. The painter wants us to feel rather than see. The softness of a coat, the weight of a leg on a block of stone. A simple look, a simple attitude and we imagine vast distant landscapes. Rémi Bourquin's animals share their dreams with us.
