Bruet, Thierry

ARTWORKS

Born in Paris in 1949, Thierry Bruet is a painter for over 35 years. Thierry’s paintings are made with a consciously classical touch and executed with traditional oil technique. His artworks are witty, satirical and replete with carefully observed details. One side of him tends towards caricature and the grotesque, the other towards elegance and refinement.

Thierry Bruet exhibitions have been sponsored by the French Ministry of Culture at the Thiers Museum in Metz, by the Institut de France in Paris and by the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris, but the artist has put on other shows of his own in Paris, Luxembourg, Palm Beach, London, Vancouver and Ibiza….

He was also featured at the Paris Art Fair in 2012 and 2013 and is taking part in SH Contemporary 2014 in Shanghai as well as Luxembourg Art Week Positions 2017 and 2018. Artworks by Bruet have been commissioned by great French decorators such as Alberto Pinto, Frédéric Méchiche and Pierre-Yves Rochon. Many others can be found in collections around the world, as well as in famous luxury hotels like the George V, the Bristol and the Shangri-la in Paris, the Hermes stores in Paris and in the Four Seasons hotels in Alexandria, Florence and London.

AWARDS : 2016 Grand Prix Fernand CORMON (for significant figurative painting) awarded by the Fondation Taylor, Paris.
