Jean- François Chéneau
Following the path of famous French traveler-painters, JF Chéneau invites us to share the feelings and the atmospheres he has experienced whilst traveling throughout South East Asia ( Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar, India )
Chéneau is an atypical artist – besides being a painter, a sculptor and a writer, he is also a successful entrepreneur. He was born in 1955 on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean in France then has been living in Bangkok since 2000. His childhood memories of boats and water have been an unending source of inspiration for exploring new shores – both for traveling and painting. Where ever Chéneau goes he brings his brushes and oil paints.
Well known Asian seascapes, such as Ha Long Bay, and fragile and graceful feminine figures play a central part in Chéneau’s current travel collection.
