Pierre Soulages


Pierre Soulages

Pierre Soulages is a french painter, engraver and sculptor. He is known as the „painter of black“.
When light hits his painting of black color, the observer sees more than just black. The game of light transforms his painting into a luminous colour.

„For me, it’s important to experience aesthetic shock, which sets in motion our
imagination, our emotions, our feelings, and our thoughts. That’s the purpose of a painting and art in general.”- Pierre Soulages
