Patrice Murciano was born in Southern France in 1969. Captivated by art at an early age he started copying strip cartoon figures at the age of 6 and exhibited his first painting when he was 12. He started painting his first muses with the make-up of his mother.
Fascinated by woman, it pays tribute to the various artistic movements which will go with him during his evolution: The “Courbisme” flatters the curves of the woman, the “Griboullisme” becomes embedded in his paintings and today they are found in this new artistic flow which is the New Pop. For a few years he left painting aside and devoted himself solely to photography – portraits, nudes and fashion.
He exhibited his new style “Pop Grunge” for the first time in New York in 1998, 10 years later he fell in love with the artistic style of American painter, Jackson Pollock, and his “dripping” technique (dripping paint onto the canvas without touching it).
