“Paris De Andrade was born in 1983. He is from Côte d'Azur, the French Riviera, in Southern France.
His interest in art began in 1991 at Bourron-Marlotte, a small town near Fontainebleau in France. Inspiration sprang from this unique environment: an unusual town, the castles and of course the magnificent Fontainebleau Forest. Bourron-Marlotte is also a town rich in history and culture, having hosted well known artists and authors such as Paul Cezanne, Auguste Renoir, Jean-Baptiste Corot, Auguste Allongé, Emile Zola, Alfred de Musset, George Sand, Henry Murger, Frederic Bazille and Camille Pissaro, who together with Vincent Van Gogh represent the crème de la crème of art in the eyes of Paris De Andrade.
In 1998, De Andrade returned to his roots in the Var region, which he likes to call his "belle Provence.” In an old medieval village clinging to the rocky hills, his passion was renewed by the flamingos, storks, mules and butterflies, the volcanic rock, lavender, rosemary and delights of the Mediterranean cuisine. Enough to make anyone dream, and above all inspire an artist!
Moving to San Francisco Bay Area in 2011 gave way to good fortune, a change of style and a transformation in his life. It is seen in the way he paints, the way he creates, and of course the way he love. His splendid childhood memories and his ever-present love fuse into a unique artistic creativity of intense mixed colors and power shapes.
Paris De Andrade work is represented in private and corporate collections around the world.”
