Thierry Guillemin

Washington, DC, United States

Biography

Thierry started to paint as he was still working for the satellite industry, in southwestern France and then on the East Coast of the US. He answered with passion this mysterious and deeply felt call towards the unknown of art exploration. Inspired by color field painting and abstract expressionism but also deeply touched by multiple forms of music, he developed over the last 15 years a very unique body of work. His often lyrical compositions are strong and balanced, inhabited by a vibrant and colorful energy and a sense of freedom. He is always searching for this elusive quality that makes a painting alive. Thierry's work can be found in a number of private collections in the US and in Europe. His studio is located in Bethesda, Maryland, northwest of Washington, DC, where he resides.
