    • Valéry Vécu Quitard, is a self-taught painter specialized in oil painting. He works with several galleries (England, Holland, Portugal, United States of America and the Czech Republic). He has also exhibited his work in Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and Spain and at the main historic exhibitions in Paris and throughout France.

      He works in two styles: still life, using the easel trompe l'oeil technique, also known as reality painting and a form of painting with a surrealist tendency inspired by popular culture and iconography.

      The latter, imbued with a touch of fantasy, symbolism and tenderness thanks to his subtle palette, blends baroque detail with poetry and an outdated, puerile universe with moderate surrealism. Subjects are largely focused on bygone or antiquated periods; for the most part, his paintings are inhabited by animals dressed in period costumes in childlike poses.

      From precise workmanship to mellow contours, his painting reassures and charms the viewer with the gentleness and nostalgia that emanates from it.

      Currently, he lives in Angoulême (France) with his wife, also painter Marie Amalia Bartolini.
