Artist Recognition: Jean-Baptiste Valadie

Jean-Baptiste VALADIE was born on 29th December 1933 in Brive (Corrèze -France).
He is graduate by the National School of Art.


His paintings are organized around a well defined composition, which is altogether rigorous and flexible, giving a magic feeling of balance. The art of Valadié is a constant search for beauty, a tireless perfection in composition, lines and colors, a permanent and passionate impulse towards a dream which opens up on the absolute. Valadié has spent his whole life celebrating the human body in his art. His female figures offer, by their suggestive attitudes, at times erotic, a sort of ritualistic ceremony.
