Based in Réunion

Paris, 1989. While he continued his musical studies at university and began a career as a jazz musician, Théophile Delaine discovered the world of visual arts. From university to various museums in Europe and elsewhere, he worked tirelessly in various techniques such as sculpture, drawing, land art, watercolour and painting in different artistic movements. He touches on everything, from Turner to Van Gogh, to contemporary art, via the geometric abstraction of Kandinsky, Malevitch or Paul Klee. But it was in 1998 that lyrical abstraction and abstract expressionism imposed themselves on him as the most appropriate modes of expression. He was inspired by Wang Yan Cheng and Zao Wou-Ki, but also by Paul Rebeyrolle and Gao Xingjian among others. Théophile Delaine is close to nature and walks a lot. He is a beekeeper, interested in flowers, the climate, science in general, he is a poet, a pastry chef and a gardener. He wonders about human nature and travels. In 2004, after resuming his studies in plastic arts at the Sorbonne Paris I, he organised his first solo exhibition. But always on the move and in search of answers, he decided to leave for Madagascar where he stayed for ten years, holding exhibitions in the French alliances and elsewhere. His painting became more refined and detailed. It takes on cosmic allure. The artist sees life as a journey, a series of experiences, feelings, joys and upheavals specific to each individual. Through his paintings, he gives us snapshots of his inner adventure inspired by the landscapes he crosses. In 2015, having reached maturity, he moved to Reunion Island where he set up his studio, facing the Indian Ocean. His painting has become a mode of expression in its own right. It is fine, precise and methodically constructed. Perched on this small rock in the ocean, he sends his works all over the world.
