Patrice Murciano is a visual artist who was born in Belfort in 1969 and grew up in the south of France.
He discovered his passion for art at an early age when he started reproducing characters from comics when he was 6 years old. At the age of 8, he borrowed his mother’s makeup to draw portraits and female nudes. Patrice was fascinated by the great masters and he reproduced the masterpieces of Velásquez and Rembrandt on oil canvas boards.
His parents quickly understood that he had a great talent and wanted Patrice to enter the fine-art school. But close friends of the family, art connoisseurs, as well as his art teacher worried that the talent of Patrice would be “affected” by a normal course at art school. His parents, whose activities were far from art, let Patrice express his imagination on the canvas as he saw it, which helped him to develop his unique artistic style.
Patrice is now 43 years old and lives in the south of France, with regular exhibitions held in New York, Osaka and Los Angeles.
