Pierre Pivet

         Pivet was born in 1948 in Normandy France and continues to carry both Canadian & French citizenship. Pivet’s studies included the prestigious Academie de Port-Royal in Paris. His work is immediate & intense, his colours vibrant, his strokes strong. Each painting depicts intimacy, be it still life or portraiture, and has the distinct influence of Cezanne, Gaugin and Matisse; who became great influences in his work.

      Pivet obtains much of his inspiration from well-known masters such as Vermeer, Cezanne, Gauguin, Braque and Rembrandt. While blending the techniques and mastery he gains from his muses, Pivet fuses his paintings with a personal energy and vitality bringing the images to life making them solely unique. Pivet's brilliant use of color and lyrical brushstrokes combine to form distinctive works that remain with the viewer long after the initial observation. His fauvist method is extremely delicate while his subject matter and style is possessed with such a broad range that you are left awestruck by his immense vision and skill. Charles Baudelaire writes “Everything that is beautiful and noble is the product of reason and calculation.” In Pierre 's case this statement couldn't be more relevant as his work radiates a deeper understanding of composition, color and studied design.

 In 1982 he was awarded the cherished position of being elected for the Prix de Monte Carlo. In Chetlamn England, 1987, he was the guest of honor at the Falcon Polo Club Queens Cup and painted a series of ‘Polo’ works for his solo exhibition. In 1997, the French Embassy in Panama featured his work in an exhibition in collaboration with French Ambassador Alain Palu de Beaupuy
