Though it is hard to believe when discovering his art, Clément Verdière is self taught. Verdière cultivated his raw talent alongside Patrick Hugues and Skunkdog in the southern city of Marseille. Feeding on the wise advices of his mentors Clément Verdière kept on pushing further away the boundaries of his painting.
Portraits are at the core of Clément Verdière’s work. Clément’s faces captivate the viewer as much as they obsess the artist in his studio. Accurate and powerful Clément’s paintings reveal and explore human nature in depth.
If Clément was not a focused pupil within the traditional classroom environment, he became one hardworking painter. There is no painter as dedicated to his practice as him. Away from academic benches he throws his entire self to his artistic creation.
Not one day goes by without Clément drawing on three paper sheets. Looking for the shades and nuances which will do his muses justice, he uses the paper as his palette. His paintings thus enter a new dimension, making their ways to our hearts.
Clément has now become one of the figurehead of contemporary hyper realism.
