It has certainly been an exceptional journey for Jean-Paul Tourbatez, the initially purely self-taught artist who has become no less than the Honorary President of the Salon of Rouen, a Marine Painter and a Chevalier of "Arts et Lettres". Jean-Paul Tourbatez is the very image of the painter whose renown has steadily grown thanks to his fine work and attention to different techniques. Demanding of himself as a talented creator, his natural ease placed him quite naturally and very quickly at the forefront of the region’s artistic excellence, and this despite a few unfortunate and incomprehensible reservations.
His personal style and love for the sea have helped him evolve a pure sense of colour and light. Over the years he has applied this with dexterity and an astuteness that definitively deters him from taking easy options, a temptation sometimes felt by a few creators inspired by marine elements. Although he still affirms his mastery through watercolours, in his current approach, Jean-Paul Tourbatez confers even more density, serenity and limpidity to his paintings inasmuch as he allows himself to use the basis of the most natural of subjects in order to brilliantly extract and reveal expressive and convincing works.
And these works skilfully display his perception, which is devoted essentially to the sea in all conditions and under all skies. Inhabited by light and reverberations, Jean-Paul Tourbatez’ painting is always captivating through its multiple and diverse visions of beauty. The artist sometimes extends this appeal in picturesque and magical urban scenes that are very evocative of atmospheres and infinite journeys.
