Michel Barthélemy
Michel Barthélemy BELGIQUE

Professional Career

After studying Greco-Latin Humanities, I studied in Plastic Arts at the Newfoundland Institute in Brussels and trained in Positive Aesthetics. I taught Plastic Arts in high school. Since my retirement in 2003, I have devoted my life almost exclusively to painting and organizing the Faerie Biennial in Arlon.

Artistic approach

My painting may be situated in the current of the fantastic realism, with a symbolist orientation. Many paintings are "improvisations": the idea is built up during the work. It is oil painting that best serves the requirements of this style of expression.
