Jean-Yves Marrec

Name:  Jean-Yves Marrec
Bio:   Breton (France) artist Jean-Yves Marrec  was born inn Brest in 1961. Painter and decorator by trade, his knowledge and fascination with colour led him to become a prolific and dedicated archivist of the Brittany littoral. Self-taught, his passion for pastels has led him to explore the world of painting via the meandering route that many self-taught painters follow – exhaustive reading, studying colour theory, perspective, art history, meetings and discussions with fellow artists, minute examination and analysis of the work of others. His dedication and talent has been duly recognised – he is the recipient of numerous awards for his work, and he has participated in group and solo exhibitions since 2005. He was recently (2011) a featured artist in the pastel supplement of the French journal Pratique des Arts.
Jean-Yves Marrec is a member of  the Association de peintres et sculpteurs de Quimper Cornouaille.

Jean-Yves Marrec est peintre pastelliste Quimpérois, né à Brest en 1961. Autodidacte, le pastel est pour lui une véritable passion. Il s'est formé au fil du temps, au contact d'amis peintres et de différentes   rencontres. Sa carrière professionnelle lui a fait côtoyer « la couleur » de toutes les manières possibles. Peintre en bâtiment de métier puis peintre décorateur, il suit ensuite une longue formation qui lui fait  approfondir le travail sur la théorie des couleurs, les perspectives dans leur ensemble, la pédagogie et l'histoire de l'Art. Il devient formateur en peinture en C.F.A. Il a beaucoup lu, regardé et analysé la  peinture des autres. Il dit: Je pense que la curiosité nous amène à apprendre et à mieux comprendre ce qui nous entoure!
