ABC Wednesday - X

I couldn't think of an artist, off the top of my head, whose name; first or last, starts with X. So I did a google search and came up with an artist I'd never heard of before. Thanks ABC Wednesday!  And what a bunch of nice people they are!


X is for Xavier Deshoulieres
 French Artist

Learn more about Xavier Deshoulieres by visiting none other than the hoity-toity Website of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy . Oh là là !



Peace, love and all groovy things,
Pagan Sphinx

  7. I rather like looking at his paintings. It is fun to find new contemporary artists, though I do appreciate an informed interpretation of their work!

  8. Thank you for taking time to discover this 'X' artist!

    I find the contrast between the buildings and their environment, quite something.

  9. Thanks, blog friends!

    Aguja: I find his lines interesting. By the way, I am having trouble leaving comments on your blog and still trying to find a way around it. I hope you get this comment!

    Violet Sky: I provide links to the information on the artists and their works whenever possible. I don't interpret art work, usually. Who am I to try to second-guess someone else's vision? In this case there is a link to follow if you should want to learn more. Thanks for stopping by.
