David Paquet was born in Toulouse (France) in 1964.
From his childhood he stood out for his capacity to see the beauty around him and express it firstly on paper and later on canvas, in a unique and personal way.
From his humility he brings the character out of those he portrays, becoming great himself.
Lately his interest focuses on the world of the invisible and the transcendental, making it visible through his art.
David Paquet, great artist, greater person.
A.A. Friend and collector.
A sweet inner transformation to the present that opens to me a wide range of possibilities and freedom.
We have to develop again the ability of amazement that there is in every moment, the magical potential of the instant. That ordinary and daily magic, that tibetans called Drala.
Creative is common to everything and everybody, but only its utilizations develops muses.
I reclaim the healing action of art over beings and their presents.
Superrealism: definition of David Paquet
The reality of our lifes always has offered boundless combinations of possibilities, creating sometimes moments SUPPEREALIST.
Now, I propose a second definition to add the RAE.
Artist movement of second half of XXI century that find, look up or recreate anecdotic, eccentrics and weird situations in the reality.
