About my artwork

Jean Claude Gracia was born in 1958 in a small village of Gascony in France .Then, his family moved to Fontvieille, near Arles, the heart of Provence.

After studying at the Art school of Biarritz he traveled around the world. At the present time he shares his residences between United State and France.

He has his painting in private, corporate collection included the Crawford House Museum in NY, the Museum of Espaya in Greece, the Museum of Mont Gris in Spain. The Museum of Farmington invited him to show his work as well as several others Galleries in the United State and abroad . He was published in several newspapers and magazine like Talent in Motion.

The southern sun light continues to inspire Jean Claude by his use of rich colors which inflame his painting to become an eruption of vibrant feelings, a celebration of light and fire His unique brush strokes carve the thick oil paint following his state of mind : sometime at peace, sometime carried away by a wind of torment ; Jean Claude Gracia explains :

”Painting is like a raging river swirling of joy, a powerful torrent of craziness. . . the entire picture is curling: the sky, the trees and the field of wheat are swirling by a mysterious power, the power of mind, the power of gaiety; a simple landscape become an explosion of color where each pigment is a leaf carried away by a tumultuous current; the entire world is turning around me faster and faster, a wheel of passion and emotion where I am the conductor; my brush is my baton, the scenery my orchestra and you are the spectator”

He wan the Puffin Foundation Award for his work entitled: “ Dedication for
Mankind and Nature with Love” he is a strong supporter for the conservation of the land and the earth and a strong activist for the awareness of the global warming.
