|A figurative artist with a Provencal inspiration, Philippe janin employs rigorous technical skills in the processes of structuring, drawing , applying matter, and introducing colors. His guiding principle is that mastering technique is a prerequisite for freeing his mind and letting his most spontaneous and sensuous instincts achieve their natural role and expression. It is not intellect but passion that drives his quest to reach an emotional peak with each work of art.
Philippe is well known both for his oils and pastels, which are avidly collected in France and abroad.
His work charms a wide audience from the casual gallery patron to the most sophisticated collector.
Acclaimed internationally through exhibitions in more than twenty galleries, he is now at the forefront of the Provence school.
