Camille Leblond

Name: Camille Leblond
Bio: Camille Leblond was born in Morocco in 1950. Aged 12 he read a book written by Perruchot about the life of Van Gogh which inspired him to become a painter. His technique and style changed drastically when, in Brittany, the pastel became his chosen medium. His personal exploration of powder pastel, combined with the particular qualities of the Breton landscape opened him up as a figurative and landscape artist. Powder pastel itself became a source of inspiration, research and subject matter.
