It’s Nature | Paintings and drawings by Didier Vachet
Didier Vachet and Painting
Didier Vachet draws from an early age and likes to caricature his classmates and teachers, which leads him naturally to the world of comics.
As a teenager, he takes part in several drawing competitions, including the Angoulême festival three times (secondary school category) and finishes in first place. A few years later, Didier publishes a comic strip composed of 5 plates with the collaboration of a scriptwriter in a fanzine by Sémic.
Particularly curious and interested in all forms of art, he frequents for 20 years in the universe of Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, which strongly influences his study of color and interest in culture.
Driven by his family, he begins to paint in the summer of 2017. Guided by his ideas, he sketches; first the forms and then the colors, which animate him during the creation of his paintings.
His inspirations are diverse and reflect his curiosity: he is interested in nineteenth and twentieth century painting, sculpture, architecture, history, cinema, comics, travel … This openness allows him to produce works of different styles and explore many themes using multiple mediums (marker, pencils, watercolor, acrylic, oil etc.).
His inventiveness is also expressed in the use of unusual materials such as soy sauce, lipstick or aluminum foil.
His eye and his sensitivity are at the origin of an eclectic graphic and colorful style, imbued with humor and referring in turn to comics, cubism or graphics.
