Gilles Larbi


Gilles LARBI (Gil.L) born in 1958 I live in Brittany in Plérin Autodidact professional photographer since 1991: I work in illustration for the magazine press, publishing and advertising. Since 1999, I devote myself in parallel to a research on the body, the dance and the landscape by a digital work combining photography and painting. This work passes from the photographic reality to more pictorial and dreamlike images Painter: there is also concrete to the abstract in a colorist and spontaneous approach; accepting a streamlined graphic or blending into the material. My work in painting is mainly monotypes and oil on paper Eclectic creator, loving to vary the techniques worked alone or in combination thanks to the numerical tool. The important thing is to arouse through my work emotions, preferably happy and positive
