Lucien Pinaud

My name is Lucien Pinaud-Betzy. Self-taught painter born on August 7, 1969 in Fort de France in Martinique.

I have always drawn. At the age of 11 I was spotted by my teacher who introduced me to a TV host because I was sculpting historical figures (Victor Hugo, Abraham Lincoln…) as well as certain objects (violin…) in chalk bars. I was on the program “l’arbre à palabres” with a famous writer, Henri Corbin, and a great visual artist, Hector Charpentier.

In 1985 I won the national competition of all the high schools in France for the design of a poster for the 100 years of written expression.

In 2006 I decided, after studying accounting and working for a few years, to make a collection to present to galleries.
