PresentationJean-luc Virard, also known as Boun, is a Sino-vietnamese painter, born in 1965 in Vientiane (Laos). He lives in France since 1973 and is a member of the International Academy of Arts since 2007.
For twenty-five years, he has travelled all over the world for professional reasons or for his own pleasure. This polyglot globe-trotter has been influenced by the oriental and western culture since his childhood.
This great communicator, who has a passion for Art, Culture and also people, has kept his capacity for marvelling intact.
His sensitivity, his vision of the world and things around him, naturally lead him to painting.
His pictorial work is motivated by his sensitivity, his imagination and ideal.
Some of his colours are made of natural pigments.
Boun is an erudite man, who is mad about painting and works ceaselessly with rage. His absolute freedom allows him all daring creations and offers him a large field of inspiration.
His endless appetite for painting, his passion for colours and his intense physical commitment are reflected in his works. Force, emotion and magnetic power emerge from his paintings.
This brief summary of Boun’s work cannot ignore that all his learning, his creativity and his inventiveness are devoted to his sincere and deep search for reaching life mysteries and following the trail of his spiritual opening, travelling all the way to the very depths of himself
