In his light filled watercolors, Gilles DURAND tries to be true to the emotion inspired by the subject.
After a career in research and development in the Hi-Tech industry, during which he painted and drew whenever he had a chance, Gilles now devotes his efforts to the pursuit of his artistic journey.
A Member of the "Institut des Arts Figuratifs" (IAF) in Québec, Canada, of the "Société Française de l'Aquarelle" (SFA) and of the "Société des Aquarellistes Lyonnais" in France, he regularly holds personal exhibitions in France and has participated in numerous group shows nationally and internationally.
In his work, he likes to explore a variety of subject matters and whether working from life or from the sketches and photos he brings back from his explorations, his goal and hope is to capture the vibrancy of life, simply and elegantly.
