Well-known French artist Gildas Coudrais debuted another successful exhibition at Villa Aurora on Nov. 15. Following last year’s success, Coudrais, a French artist based in Northern Germany, exhibited again his modern, colorful art, drawing a crowd of collectors and galleries from around the world.
Once more, Coudrais seduced the audience with his expressive and witty art. Coudrais, who said he was very pleased with the turn out, sold newly released pieces to art collectors who very much appreciate his style and creativity.
A Paris gallery owner expressed interest in displaying his artwork in France.
“It is very rewarding to know that my art is appreciated not only in Europe but in America as well. I plan to be back next year,” Coudrais said.
The artist makes use of a variety of materials in order to approach the topic of superficiality, which may go hand in hand with the topic of beauty.
Not unlike the artists of ancient times, he applies the mythological saga of the Judgement of Paris to rate beauty and its underlying pertinence. The artist is drawn to the question of superficiality and shallowness in reality and the banality of objects and how to project it into his art.
And once again Coudrais showed in an extraordinary exhibition his talent to play with his art and his audience by asking what is beauty, what is superficiality and how real the visible truth is and what the price of beauty is.
