Christian Bozon

"The idea appears little by little, it is a consequence of life."


Notes of biography

Christian Bozon was born in Lons-le-Saunier, France in 1969. From 1986 he trained at the Art School of Besancon and receives his diploma in 1987. He visits the studios of George Oudut and Jean-Marc Scanreigh. He starts engraving in 1987 in his home town.
In 1993-1994 he organizes an engraving studio at the French Cultural Centre in Tetouan, Morocco, thus fulfilling a childhood dream to live in the south. His dream endures, he learns to speak Spanish; his art from now on will express a warmth of the Andalusia and Africa.
A printer of line-engraving Christian Bozon manipulates colors with dexterity. The artist constructs his compositions with utmost rigor; the refined tones that he uses are subtle and unusual. His art is often made with warm colors that are softly balanced between abstraction and imaginary figures. In the domain of graphic art his principle means of expression are aquatint and dull varnish, these techniques are often used in the same work. Bozon equally uses dry-pointing or a black style. He does not use etching as a technique as he judges that it does not correspond to his personality.
Engraver and painter, the artist today lives in Malaga, Spain. For 10 years he has worked at the “Taller Gravura”, created in 1981, the engraving studio of Paco Aguilar with whom he became acquainted with at a meeting of Mediterranean artists in 1993. Christian Bozon regularly exhibits in Europe, Japan, the United States and Africa in both solo and group exhibitions in galleries, institutions, Biennales and Salons. His work has been awarded numerous prizes in France and Spain. Bozon remains an artist of color and light.

Artists on display

The art and the artists display: proclamations, galleries, museums, personal or collective exhibitions. On walls or in shop windows, wise or rebels, posters warn, argue, show. Some were specially conceived by an artist for such or such event, other, colder, have only the letter.

Some were created in lithographic technic, most are simple offset reproductions. They are many those who like collecting these rectangles of paper, monochrome or in games of colours, in matt paper or brilliant, with many words or almost dumb.

We are happy also to be able to greet, by this pages, mythical galleries as those of Denise René, Louis Carré, Claude Bernard, Berheim Jeune, Maeght, Pierre Loeb and others.
