Patrick Faure is a native of the Principality of Monaco and the creator of Faurism (’fôrĭzǝm).
After receiving art training in Monaco and France, Patrick moved to the United States and gained recognition for his surrealistic work. Patrick relocated to London in 2010 and started to explore a new form of expression. His current paintings merge art, philosophy, and poetry in a new concept, Faurism, which ventures into the world of dreams, sexual desire, knowledge, and erudition. The result is a synthesis of mythical phantasms, modern human condition, and contemporary imagery.
Influenced by Platonic and Existentialist thought, Patrick challenges the viewer to uncover the intricate messages hidden in every part of his creations. While critics have described his style as 'Escher meets Dali', Patrick does not see himself as a Surrealistic painter. To the opposite, he has developed his work into an epic poem questioning the metaphysics of homo sapiens's existence.
Patrick recently participated as a solo exhibitor in Contemporary Istanbul 2018, where his work was recognised in newspapers and magazines alike. His list of exhibits includes shows in Belgium, England, Italy, Turkey, and the United States. He is being represented by galleries in Istanbul and London.
