FABIEN GARCIA



Born in 1986 in Montpellier, France.
A Graduate in Arts and Languages, mention applied arts from the university center of training and research of Nîmes in 2007.
Straight after university, i embarked on an adventure and left France.
As the art was taking more and more space and time in my life, I decided in 2016 to return to my native country to study the old masters.


I currently live and work in Surf Beach, Victoria, Australia.
I have crossed paths with great artists who have greatly influenced my work. I first broadened my skills and sharpened my vision on a daily basis with the sculptor Éric Chatalin, former student of Charles Auffret, in the alternative art’s school Auralithe. I then immersed myself in the world of colours and textures working beside the painter Nushka.

What is the aim of my artworks?
I never set out to create a particular response from the viewer, it is definitely out of my control. However, if for a moment, anyone feels at the sight of one of my paintings time is slowed down then It would be the ultimate dream for me. I like to think that people can escape through my paintings. Contemporary life offers very little respite. Painting can be a cure: by slowing down time and creating connections between people, sharing experiences. Today I am exploring the structure of figuration, between realism and abstraction, I seek the necessary balance for a painting to exist by itself, no need for interpretation or meaning. It’s a sensory experience, it is alive, and I am definitely, for life.
