Under The Tropical Sun
After a first visit to St Barth, French painter Alain Le Chatelier, fell completely in love with the Caribbean. Since then, the beauty of the tropics has slowly crept into this work, where lush vegetation and hot colors make his paintings truly captivating.
Fascinated by the laidback lifestyle of Saint Barth, Alain Le Chatelier pays homage to all that creates the charm of the island: the blues of the sea, the cactus, the hummingbirds, shells... The juxtaposition of such elements, often in unexpected ways, combines flawlessly with his explosive use of color.
After a first glance, it seems that the signature of Alain Le Chatelier’s work can be found in the presence of a full environment, completely integrated into the canvas. The idea is to both delineate and perfect what he is painting within an envelope of greenery. For example, on a canvas of Grand-Cul-De-Sac, one can see a bestiary of flora and fauna that inhabits the bay. In the foreground, every detail counts. There are large cacti, as well as flowering plants, while a small bird shows the tip of its beak. In the background, the main subject, the sea and its turquoise waters. The artist continues to add exquisite details: nuances of pink in the sky, the force of the waves in the lagoon, a sailboat bobbing on the horizon, the reddish roofs of the Creole cottages, the palm trees bending to the wind… The canvases are busy, but every element has its place.
A man of many talents, the diversity of Alain Le Chatelier’s artistic production is prodigious. Some of his work evokes the brilliant style of Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who has influenced generations of artists who followed in his footsteps. These fabulous anthropomorphic portraits composed of fruits, vegetables, flowers, or even animals can be found in Le Chatelier’s incredible repertoire as well.
Every series of the artist’s paintings are simply adored by art lovers as well as the general public. The permanent exhibit of his work includes over 20 pieces where Alain Le Chatelier’s great love for nature is omnipresent. The paintings, including panoramas of the island, display the extent of the artist’s extraordinary universe.
These canvases are open to interesting metaphorical interpretations. It’s up to you to take a look...
Prices: Starting at 5,000€

Fascinating Street Art
Strong color, linear variations, graffiti: elements that define paintings by Tanc, one of the most successful street artists of his generation. Influenced by the abstract expressionists, this visual artist/painter born in Paris grew up as a graffiti artist, be it on the street or on canvas.
Today, nuances of black, an accent on line and color, and the vitality of graffiti-style writing are at the heart of his work. Like a nod to the work of Henri Michaux, Tanc’s research is based on the synthesis of strokes, rhythm, color, and energy.
Painting on canvas, 135 x 120 cm, unique work of art, price on request
Several works by Tanc are available on ventedart.com
