Lionel Borla was born in 1974 and lived on the French Riviera until 1992. His Italian ancestors passed on to him the quest for beauty and harmony.
Lionel Borla has been painting since 2000 after graduating from the School of Architecture in Marseille in 1998 and playing the piano during his teenage years. The pictorial world appeared to him to be his kingdom.
In a very graphic writing with flat surfaces, bright colours or dull tones, a sign of silhouette inhabits landscapes, architecture and other musical scenes, like a sensitive spirit in love with beauty.
The works are mainly made on paper with Chinese ink, gouache, acrylic and walnut hull tincture. Photography and digital drawing are also among the techniques utilized.
The images created - where rhythm is central because creating is composing - then invite the viewer to the silent journeys of the mind.
