Djil MARSON was born in 1961.
Painter, mixed media. New Figuration.
Student of the School of Fine Arts in Bordeaux. In 1982, a trip to the United States introduced him to contemporary American painting. From 1983 to 1986, he participated in various group exhibitions in Paris. Then, a series of trips take him to Thailand, Singapore, Bali, Australia. He exhibited in Brisbane, Port-Douglas, Sydney. In 1989, he returned to France. In December 1990, taking over from the professional galleries, a Paris auctioneer firm took the initiative to organize a brief personal exhibition for him, followed by a public sale. After having practiced an abstract experience, he joined the New Figuration, where he demonstrated his independence, using photography in photomontages, the repetitive arrangement of subjects as he had seen it done in American painting, and referring without complex to the various practices of Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Robert Combas, Peter Blake. His works, by the diversity of sources and techniques, are generally distinguished from “bad painting” by their graphic, chromatic and material richness.
