Francois Thevenet

Francois Thevenet (b. 1993, Tarbes, France) has been living in Buenos Aires, Argentina for the past 5 years. His paintings explores the different contrasts that he knew in his life, moving out to a natural field in the South of France to the megalopolis of Argentinian cities. This contrast is manifested in his paintings that show different scenes that move from violent to peaceful, urban to natural, chaotic to harmonic, and ordinary to extraordinary, and all painted in contemporary narratives and vivid colors. The paintings all together show a permanent tension between all these opposing forces.
