Painter – Photographer Georges Couvois
Georges Couvois’ first exhibition took place in Lille in 1967, followed by an exhibition at the House of Teachers in 1969.
He was noticed by the Voix du Nord (North regional newspaper) for his "Portrait in Blue."
Then, he worked with Blyweert, Laporte and Abel Leblanc, some famous regional painters.
He has been a member for several years of the Association of Artists (Lille) founded in 1961. He exhibited regularly at the Palais Rihour alongside Ortega Donato, President and Marian Kaczmarek, watercolorist, and other artists of the group. His works have won awards in De Panne and Brussels (Belgium)
Since 2003, he has been a regular exhibitor every year at the Saint Cyr l'Ecole and also won the Audience Award in 2011.
One of his outstanding achievements includes being the author of the portrait of the famous French actor and theater director Robert Hossein, which was presented to him for his 77th birthday at the Palace Paris Convention in 2004.
His last exhibition was held in November 2015 at Theatris in Metz.
Georges is also a photographer and his work can been seen throughout his many travels to Tokyo, New York, Sydney, Berlin, Manila, Santo Domingo, Roma and Paris.

Several pictures have been regularly published in the French magazine Photo, La Tribune or in the Exchange Review.
Georges Couvois says: "You will find below the latest publication appearing in a French magazine,
as well as my latest paintings... to allow you to judge my artistic work."
ITS COLLABORATION BETWEEN NANJING UNIVERSITY OF THE ARTS
"I present you the various axes both in painting and in sculpture or photography, which could be the object of developments with your students."
"Indeed multiple ways are both opened to the pictorial level and at the level of the correlation of the styles."
"I think that these subjects, which ensue from styles actually presented and in development in France and in Europe
on basis of a craze of the art lovers, may bring novelty and be strong for studies and artworks."
His experience includes strong teaching skills in well-known
Universities and he has also a strong practical experience, execution, ability and presentation skills as creator or performer.
The projects he proposes all have the potential ability to upgrade our school’s academic performance in a globalized environment.

Angela Jackson left England almost 30 years ago and she has been living and painting in France ever since. She thinks one can immediately notice the difference between the works painted by French artists and hers. "From one country to another, art changes in colors and topics. My painting is definitely English: I use darker colors because they remind me of my home country. Each country has its own specificity".
Angela Jackson's inspiration reflects her passions, "coup de coeur" and English origins. She enjoys painting beautiful and gentle subjects (flowers, children etc.). As regards her work "Peony Bouquet", which was exhibited at the "Salon des artistes lorrains", she was inspired by a bunch of flowers that some friends gave her. "I paint everything, every day". It was time that made her want to paint. Her paintings suggest delicacy, femininity and emotion. This flowery, tender and romantic universe reveals an artist who enjoys changing and playing with light with the aim of constantly evolving.
A couple of Jackson's works: "Peony Bouquet" and "09 Flowers". They are available in the "Salon des artistes lorrains" until June 26.

Apprentice locksmith since the age of 13, Jean-Michel Diki-Paré has always loved experimenting, tinkering on several diverse materials. With the new millenium starting, the artist and the craftsman become one. His creations are innovative, surprising, sometimes even impressive, but always finely executed in a "noble metal": stainless steel.
For the 123rd edition of the "Salon des Artistes lorrains", seven of his sculptures are exhibited; human figures, animals, chimeric structures combining music with animals as well as everyday life objects with human world. It is amazing to discover how these sculptures, though being made of the same metal, are so unique. "I am not interested in copying: innovation and renovation are the key factors". With this approach, Jean-Michel Diki-Paré manages to materialize his dreams through new creations.
Awarded in 2015 at the same exhibition (Salon des artistes lorrains), here he comes again this year. "This is a superb exhibition I have been doing for a few years. For me, it is a great opportunity to gather a large number of sculptures". Actually, several of the sculptures exhibited at the show have already been acquired by private individuals. When people were asked about the reasons that pushed them to buy these famous sculptures in stainless steel, "great" and "coup de coeur" were the words that stand out the most. In 2009 a couple of purchasers discovered Jean-Michel Diki-Paré's chimeric sculptures while attending one of his exhibition taking place on the artist's barge. At that time, the sculpture they acquired did not exist yet, but "La Parisienne" was already one of their favorite works. Eventually, at Vittel exhibition, they fell in love with that art work (below).
The artist's inspiration comes from "everyday life". What we detect in his sculptures is not just one, but multiple subjects overlapping one another. But we cannot talk about Jean-Michel Diki-Paré's art without dealing with stainless steel.
Stainless steel is a steel alloy little affected by corrosion. It is not commonly used by sculptors. Compared to other metal materials, stainless steel has some special properties to be taken into account when shaping sculptures (significant reactions to high temperatures, poor conductors...). Yet, the peculiarity of this hard metal and the need to shape it from A to Z are features that have bewitched Jean-Michel Diki-Paré. He succeeded in taming stainless steel to mold these magnificent creations.
Finally he claims: "Nothing is unfeasible with good will and strength".

We are delighted and pleasantly amazed at the painting award he was given at the opening of the 123rd exhibition of Lorraine's artists. Didier Kriebs shares his impressions and comments with us:
How do you explain the award you have won today?
"I was pleasantly surprised and very happy. I had suspected it since the day I was asked to arrive earlier for the inauguration. I had already exhibited for Lorraine's artists, but I had never received any award. I think that tonight the award has been offered to my technique. I am also deeply proud to exhibit in Nancy. It is a nice city for me because, as I am bilingual (French, German), it gives me the opportunity to show in my home region (Lorraine): I was born in Saint-Avold, a town near the German border".
What do you think about when you begin an art work?
"I paint mainly faces, my works always focus on characters. When I start to paint, I think of nothing but to do the portrait".
Where do your inspirations come from?
"My portraits are fully ad evidently inspired by comics or films, in particular movies with special effects such as Marvel films, for instance Hell Boy, which is one of my favorite. I do not work on a series basis, I just expect a portrait to be well done all the way. Sometimes I play with formats including previous topics. But then I adapt them on new canvases of different size (large portraits), for instance I change the pose that the character originally had".
Didier Kriebs lets us dive into his universe of characters with poignant glances, mixing reverie and fantasy with human silhouettes.
Two of Kriebs's portraits are available on Alstom website until June 26: "Arthur" and "Ray".

We have met Vera Ivanaj, an Albanian painter, at the 123rd exhibition of Lorraine artists. Through three of her new acrylic works, she introduces us to a colorful, modern and visionary world and conveys a strong message concerning our present, past and future life. With these three works "Toward other banks", "Holiday time" and "Beyond space and time", the artist shows a new art range focusing on the theme of "construction, deconstruction". Vera Ivanaj's new works launch us into a new world, a projection in time. They correspond with abstract art, which is a deliberate choice of the artist who wants us to freely interpret her works. Yet, if we fix our gaze on this triptych, the abstract pattern immediately gives way to a deep symbolism. The artist takes inspiration from Cubism, especially from Picasso. By playing with rectangular and circular lines, she manages to build a space in which anyonel can give free rein to their interpretation.
In "Toward other banks" we can see a projection into the artist's past life. The painting is divided in two different parts: on the right side, the characters represent the numerous migrants aiming to leave their land to find a new one. The crescent moon curves refer to the weekdays which will enable their exile. "As I have been myself, they are actually attracted by this new, unknown world, which is represented on the left side. But will it really be a better world?". Only those who made this journey will be answered.
"Holiday time" shows a picture of these days in which the characters pose in a kind of attitude we usually have on holiday. We can find a woman lying in a position of rest, but she is transparent: this implies that such an attitude is meaningless and does not allow to fully live one's life. Instead, the character curled above the transparent woman suggests the experience he has acquired over the years through his colours. As opposed to the rectangular lines prevailing on the right side, the flowing and rounded curves on the left side and in the middle of the painting let us picture a kind of shelter, a protection under which we spend our holidays before returning to our hard everyday life, which is represented by stricter lines on the right side of the painting.
"Beyond space and time", the third and last painting of this triptych, adds a historical dimension. It is a projection into both future and past: "The central eye is a look, a vision of the world of tomorrow, but also of the past." It is also divided in two areas that seem to confront each other. On the bottom left corner there are three small characters representing the past: they casually look the city which has risen above them; the same city belongs to the future for their nature (half-man half-insect). As opposed to these creatures, the characters enclosed in frames on the right side of the painting belong to the present. They represent our society which influences and confines us in a narrow view and universalised scheme. This latest art work allow us to travel through time.
As usual, the works of Vera Ivanaj reflect her desire to share the simplest and most universal world sorrounding us and constituting our existence. In her latest series construction, deconstruction, the Albanian artist plays with a plurality of perspectives, allowing us to travel through different times and creating a sort of duality: left, right, many symbols. She always lets us free to interpret her works and uses evasive shapes to allow anyone to give free rein to their imagination. A well-deserved "original painting" mention confirms her will to create original and personal works breaking with conventional ideas.
These three creations are available on Alstom website until June 26.
