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.
He received the Audience Award in the Photography category in Lille in 2013.
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.

Emerich Meerson is a French artist, painter, illustrator and designer. He was born in Germany and grew up in Bulgaria. He discovered France at the age of 15. After travelling a lot with his family, he has started to consider himself as an European citizen. Yet, France is particularly dear to his heart because it is there where he has learned about artistic mix, especially in Paris, the historical cradle of Europe's biggest names.
[Early years] "When I was 8 I had a drawing lesson by a aunt of mine: she was a sculptor. Since that day on, my hands have never stopped holding a pencil. At the age of 18 I was entrusted with the director post in one of my uncles' jewellery. I started with pre-war watch dial redesigning. Thanks to some American clients, I had the chance to build the brand in the United States. One day supermodel Twiggy was wearing my watch on the cover of ELLE magazine and then everything just followed. Later, business developped in France until the day my uncle's son recovered the management position. Thus I started my own business and began to work for top brands such as Tiffany and Mikimoto...In 1993 I closed down my factory in Besançon so that I could entirely devote myself to painting. Before giving up my manufacturing production I used to paint. I used to decorate the two shops I had in Paris with my paintings and when somebody asked me who was the artist, I used to say he was a friend of mine because, unfortunately, in France you are not allowed to do two things at the same time. I was known for designing watches, so if suddenly people had discovered I was also a painter, it would not have worked. It is different in the US.
[His art] I have devoted myself to painting for 23 years, every single day. It is not a job, but a pleasure. When I am painting I am in my own world. I am into what I am doing. I do not really know how it will look like, but I know I am working on it and I am completely inside my painting. If I were a woman, I would say that I am giving birth to something unknown. And I cannot say it is painless.
That is why I call myself an illustrator; I am doing now with painting what I used to do with objects. I never think about my works as something that people will like, I definetely prevent myself from doing this. I could compare it with the jewels and watches I used to sell: they were supposed to be fine arts according to my own criteria, and not mere gadgets, which I hate.
I receive lots of letters from people who saw my paintings and comment on them. They all mention the feelings, mind and sometimes even philosophy. In fact, these people have all felt something deep inside themselves in relation to my works.
People do not really like my paintings because of some colour or some pencil mark here and there. They like the whole and that is why I use only certain formats: my works should be observed in their entirety. One single detail of my works may be nice, but it does not make the work itself. I would like people to talk with me as a whole and it is the same thing for my works.
[Motivation] In each one of my ended works I want to see a sense of harmony,find the truth, represent something. Yet I must disappear. That is why I always sign on the back so that I do not risk currupting such harmony.
[Inspiration] I do not know...inspiration starts from my mind, my soul, the emotions I feel at some particular moment or even some facts I have heard about. Possibly twice a year, I start with a preconceived idea: when I send my greetings and on Jewish Easter day which is a crucial moment to me because it is a perpetual renewal and means liberation. Once you are free, you need to know where to go and how to go. Formerly I used to achieve it through representational art, while later I have turned to abstract art. Still, when people ask me what I see in my paintings, I do not know what to say.
I am quite impressed by children's reaction before my artwork.They can feel it. Adulthood always needs figurative bonds, whereas childhood can achieve a sense of communion. It is very interesting. Children own some truth that adults do not own anymore. During my first exhibition some elderly people passed by and a woman among them turned to me and said: "I have watched over and over again...I like it...but what is that?", so I answered: "Madam, that is a question I cannot answer" - "Pardon?" - "No, I am sorry, but maybe your imagination or sensation can" - "Ah!" You see, children do not need any explanation.
I can stare at certain artists' paintings for hours, not because I want to reproduce what they have done, but rather to witness that other people felt something and they found the way to express it.
When I first came to France I did not know anything about Western painting tradition, including French painting and its mixture of different origins. The first exhibition I visited was the Impressionists in the Tuileries. I did not have a clue what that was. Evidently I was shocked as I was not used to seeing such things at all. I was 16 at the time and I never used to ponder on things. Before leaving, I turned around again and I spotted a painting on the right corner. It was Van Gogh's "Windswept tree". I was overwhelmed. The first Picasso's works such as "The two brothers" and "Harlequin" definetely move me. All the paintings which make me stare and ponder also enable my emotions to emerge. Van Eyck's portraits are quite figurative, but if you focus on his subjects' eyes, their expression, you can see a whole world opening up to you before each portrait. There is much abstraction behind figurative art.
One day, someone called me an invited me to exhibit my works in a symposium in Canada. I did not know what it was, but after hearing "Canada" I accepted. As soon as I arrived at Sherbrooke in Quebec, I thought I had to go to the exhibition hall. When I arrived there, I immediately saw a field around a lake. Later on I was told the exhibition would take place exactly there, in tents. Luckly, I met a person who gave me some easels for rent so that I could show my paintings. There was a huge crowd. Someone passed by and bought one of my works. Someone else stopped and watched for a while, thinking. Since I am not able to sell my own works, I invited that person to take the painting with them and should they ever changed their mind, they could take it back to me. They did not accept and said they would come back in the aternoon. Everybody in business knows that it is not true: they never come back. However, at 4.30 pm they were there. They showed me the painting they had chosen and then said: "Today, a window has opened in my soul!". You see, I could have never sold them that painting with such an argument.
[Creation] I am living in Boulogne now, but I lived on avenue Bosquet, in the heart of Paris, for 30 years. Depending on the season, at around 8 or 9 am, the sunlight used to break through the front window and I could see the sunset every evening on the other side. It was a very bright flat. Due to the rapidity of light changes or the immediacy of certain events, I used to draw as quickly as possible or work at night. But where I live now I cannot count on the same brightness. Therefore I work during the day and when the sunlight breaks through the windows in my room I just stop. I could actually work day and night, but it is not that easy: in my painting technique it is crucial to consider that colours change with the light.
When I am not painting, it does not mean that I am not doing it in my mind. While I see my works evolving I am living with them. Painting is the easiest thing for me to do because when I paint I do not need to think.
I paint with oil paint on linen canvases. I simply cannot do anything but true and genuine things. When I prepare my paintings I must feel them. It is partially physical indeed. For the same reason, when I used to draw an object first I had to touch it and recognise it.
I buy just a few colours, in a limited number; the rest of them are mixtures I create.
When I am painting I think about the life of paint, so I do not use any material which may deteriorate. I wish all I create lasted as long as possible. It is not about pride or honour, but rather respect towards those who will buy my works.
I have painted a lot on paper. It is a mixed technique including Indian ink, oil pastels and gouache. Such technique differs a lot depending on the surfaces. But I always use materials which do not deteriorate.
[The artist's approach to art] Since I was a child I have always been a creator, but I do not just create. You have different ways of creating, but what is your intention? I have always been sensitive to the beauty of objects. When I talk about beauty, I am referring to shapes, volumes, the tactile sensation. Actually, it is all about harmony!
[The artist's challenges] I rarely repaint the same work and, when I do it, it is not because I do not like it, but rather because I wonder what people would feel in front of that painting. None gives the same interpretation and I could never give the same interpretation as the others because it is too subjective.
I think that the abstract can definetely revive a past experience.
When a painting is over, for me it is not finished: I need to see it living. At times there is something I do not like, so I correct it. Still, for instance, I am not able to put some new colour next to another to "make it better".
Along with light changing, also colours change their intensity in relation to each other. For example, if I paint a white line, it will be invisible during the day, but will emerge at night. Certain effects can change the components of a painting. However, the very important thing to me is that harmony remains. Once I have a painting, theoretically completed, on my easel, I happen to get up at night to see how it looks with no light, how it is living. This is one of the major processes, possibly the most important, of my creation.
This is exactly why I use oil paint: it is not completely opaque. When I paint several superposing layers, the transparency of overlapping colours changes according to the light they receive. Otherwise, I cannot see why the whole creation should change. Oil paint is definetly much livelier than all the other paints.
I do not like flat things. Even if I paint on flat surfaces, this must not be seen on the painting. I do not need to use any particular thing because when I am painting I do not see anything flat: I watch my creation living.

Today we introduce you to the bubbly Vera, artist and research professor at ENSIC Nancy, Vera Ivanaj was born in Albania and now lives in Lorraine, France. One of the first Passionartiste, her appearance in this segment is xxxx.
When I received her returned questionnaire, I discovered a colorful, vibrant person very much like we see in her paintings, I found her to be full of life, captivating and I thought to myself how I can i describe her in such a short segment ? Let’s Go!
It all began in Albania, from where she taps into her childhood of contrasts and the struggles of opposites between what was her past, in a country run by dictatorship and her present, in a democracy. There has been an internal conflict between revolt and reconciliation in order to create a new world, of balance, joyous universe of color, illustrated by complex, elementary forms, real or imaginary
Question [cereer] : I aspired the American dream. I found refuge in Atlanta in 2009, for the realization of a research project. Research professor, head in the clouds, who wanted to expose man and his entreprise. On the lawn of the campus of « Georgia Institute of Technology », I was suddenly awoken by a nightmare, with never-ending questions : « who are you ?», « what do you do ?», « where are you going ?». A strange power seized my hand and began to scribble unabated, automatically, on sheets of paper. Ever since, I've not been able to stop. I do not want to stop. I's still living in this beautiful dream. The dream of my life.
Question [passionartly] : I met Aude-Alexandra (the Big Boss of Passionartly) when she was a student of the EMBA programme at ICN Business School. I was immediately hooked by this courageous person, full of desire. I know that, today, such an entrepreneurship project is complex to put in place but the passion with which she puts in means that nothing will stop her succeeded or trying to help others through the gallery
Question [Energy] : Create, innovate, invent, change ! I create based on what I have experienced, what others have experienced, what I have seen, what others have lived. I transcend in humanity and in the universe. All humanity fills me with worries and concerns. I escape into nature to rest in a flow of energy and matter. Nature calls out to me to protect and save it. I did into old stories to uncover hidden treasures. I construct new cities to shelter the helpless. I dive into the unconscious to tame weaknesses. I awaken the conscience to tolerate laziness. It is my eternal battle of life versus death, darkness versus light.
Question [creativity] : I begin an internal dialogue with reality and the imaginary. All my sense are alive, alert to something that will appear on the blank canvas. It appears quickly, clear and bright, like a self-evident truth.. An endless film that unfurled before my eyes. I slice this up to immortalise it.
I am fundamentally a perfectionist and of a complex nature. This leads me to expertise and deeper understanding. But I love to innovate and change, I experiment different techniques and I invent new ones through experimentation and trial-and-error.
Humanity, nature, movement, energy, shadows, light, life, death and so many more essentiel things that I do yet long are topics I cover in my creations and let their inspiration come over me.
Question [motto] : Creative freedom is my motto and the diversity of approaches and wealth.
Coming events for Vera :
· 4th February – Apartment exhibition in Luxembourg
· 27-28 February - Talents de Femmes Event in the Town Hall, Nancy (France)
· Springtime : Open door at her workshop
· Lorraine Artists Exhibition
· Galerie Bora Baden in Brussels, Belgium
