Jean Charles Millepied

Born in 1954 in Bordeaux, Jean-Charles Millepied started painting at the prime of his life, after a path filled with diverse encounters and influences in the arts world.
In his technique he makes an original use of acrylic, emphasized by collage and imprints. Gestural traces, rhythm and intensity animate spaces rich in colour that mingle fragility and vulnerability.


His prime references are Wols, Jean Fautrier, Roger Bissières. He is passionate of the abstract expressionist movement (Joan Mitchell, Kline, De Kooning, Hartung), Clavé in Spain, Destarac and de Reimpré in France. Jean-Charles Millepied followed de Reimpré's teachings, this encounter was to determine his engagement on the abstract path.
