Born in Cognac, France in 1968 to portrait photographer parents with an affinity for aesthetics, it was fitting that modern figurative artist François Fressinier would develop his unique style.
His father’s admiration for the works of the old masters and Fressinier’s exposure to historic places, along with France’s Gallo-Roman ruins and Gothic churches, inclined Fressinier to explore and create figurative, symbolic artwork. In addition, his education at the école Brassart in Tours afforded him the opportunity to study the drawings and paintings of old and new masters. He cites inspiration from artists like Rembrandt, Anthony Van Dyke, Pierre Bonnard and Ernst Fuchs, all of which influence his style today.
