Michel Rigel was born in Bordeaux in the beginning of the 1950's to a post war France in full expansion.
Finishing an education in fine art he moved up to Paris where the culture liberation of the 1970's was in full swing
his own style developing with the changes sweeping the world during these exciting times. Techniques and ideas traded in the
Parisian cafes during the afternoons giving new light to his palette, a school you cannot pay for...
Now living out side Paris, where his overflowing studio is a haven for runaway paintbrushes and artist's canvases;
you can understand that long stays in the mystical city of Venice have fuelled Michel's inspirational work.
The history, culture and daily life held forever at a standstill by the brush, not the click of the camera.
Pure art; where the colours of the paint on the canvas hold imagination and reality together.
