Ferdinand Boutard lives and works in Paris. He attended various art schools before choosing to focus on animated film (pour la petite histoire...
) at the animation school les Gobelins. After his studies, his career path led him to work (octopussies
) on several full-length and short films, among which four personal productions (latrodectus hasselti
). In 2011, he decided to answer what he knew to be his true calling and become a painter. Pencil to computer, acrylic to oil (catfights
), Ferdinand has experimented with a broad spectrum of media (miscellaneous
). These artistic ambulations inform a vision that has managed to evolve while remaining true to itself (le petit chaperon rouge
). Painting has provided Ferdinand with the challenge of a lifetime (the way back
). A fervent admirer of Caravage, Velazquez, Vermeer, Schiele and Rockwell among others (instagram
), Ferdinand aims to revive (curriculum vitae
) a certain kind of classicism (e-mail
), in a way that (biography
) reconciles rigor with humor.
