Based in France
Bazévian Delacapucinière is an artist, now based in France who painted vibrant figurative painting with vivid colors. Norwegian, Brasilian, Korean, Bazévian spent 10 years on the road, meeting a lot of artists and people.
Bazévian focuses mostly on portraits, because the face is a vital part of how we express ourselves. «Face is language and meaning. It is obviously the location for the expressions and emotions which gives information about the character. However, the face is also the only part of the body that is normally exposed and naked. We can't hide it in our society. Finally, it belongs to social issue".
Bazévian unpacks the consumerist imagery that saturates society— namely impossibly perfect magazine pictures— by composing figures whose bodies disappear and faces form in an explosion of vivid colour. For Delacapucinière, these faces are vessels of social standards, and their interpretation therefore becomes an invitation to challenge such norms.
Bazévian used several techniques with oil, oil pastel and acrylic to create small, medium and large painting, developing new technique of expression by dilatation and extracting the painting.
Bazévian has held solo exhibitions in France, Norway, Brazil and South Korea. Emerging artist, Bazévian’s painting can be found in all collection from US to Europe and now Asia.
