Painter and Visual Artist

  • Didier Bourdon is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Art, in London, and subsequently studied with Professor Otello Chiti in Sienna, Italy. He has received many prizes for his work. After living and working for many years in Holland, he has now returned to his native France.
  • Didier Bourdon's art is allegorical. He starts generally with drawing to find and explore resonances that appear. The purpose of these drawings is not to plan the eventual painting but is a research process into the content of the image. The resulting painting, which is not descriptive, feeds from the experience of the drawings, growing little by little. The aim is not to control the image but to let the image emerge, allowing the subconscious to rise to the surface.
