French painter Laurent Parcelier interested in art from an early age, Parcelier attended the Applied Arts School in Dordogne. His obvious talent soon materialized into the publication of several of his albums called “Le Drole de monde” (“Strange World”). His fame was beginning to spread and his way seemed all but traced out until the paining contest on the street where he was lent a canvas, paint and brushes.
Surprisingly, although at this point Parcelier has not touched a paint brush in several years, he won the first prize. Admirers praised his for his effortless and instinctive style. From that moment, he decided to dedicate his life to painting. Parcelier states “I like my painting to look real, so that people can recognize the place”.
