About

Female figure clad in white, sitting accross from her shadow on a chaise lounge. Beiges, white, black. Oil and silver on canvas. Patrick Pietropoli was a teacher of political studies for several years before becoming a professional artist. Trained as both a painter and a sculptor, his oil on linen paintings have both an antique feel and a very contemporary freeness. Drawing inspiration from the style of old masters such as Titian and Velasquez, Pietropoli creates grand figural compositions and cityscapes. He paints the carefully articulated architecture of Paris, New York, Rome and other major cities as well as delicate nudes. His nudes capture a moment in time where he defines the relationship between form and freedom. To the viewer, a simple color field becomes a stable wall behind the figure. Each painting, due to its observed patience, is timeless.With small amounts of paint and a restricted palette, he brings an intimate texture and space to his paintings. He has executed commissions in the form of frescoes and monumental sculpture for the Mutualite Francaise and has consistently exhibited his work in Italy, France, Belgium and America. Pietropoli has been recognized as an established artist in France since the mid 1980’s. His solo exhibitions in the United States and abroad draw both collectors and admirers. Biography Patrick Pietropoli is a contemporary painter artist who represents cityscapes and street scenes along with figural compositions and delicate nudes. He paints the carefully articulated architecture of New York, Paris, Rome and Venice as well as the intimate portrayal of the feminine figure always finding a perfect balance between freedom and form. Patrick Pietropoli was born in Paris in 1953. After Sciences Po Paris and Master’s degree in Ancient History, he taught history for six years before fully devoting himself to sculpture and painting. This passion started in early childhood and developed through various experiments with fine arts techniques into a life-long commitment. The artists’ canvases favor line over color while representing objects from the history of Art, architecture, cityscapes with or without figures, female figures. The ancient Greek myths are like a permanent “lietmotiv” in his work.
