Cedric Peltier was 19 years old when he started drawing and painting. He knew it was a bit late but he’s always been fascinating by people who could draw and after his bachelor in Litterature, he turned away from his journalism aspirations to fully dedicate himself to the learning of Art.
Since then, he’s always felt being in a rush, trying to catch up. Interested more by a traditional learning rather than Les Beaux Arts’ teaching, he went to Brussels in order to get the fundamentals of decorative painting at the Van der Kelen-Logelain Institute. There, he’s been taught how to create imitations of marbles, woods, precious stones and ornaments. Then, after a trip to Venice where he discovered Old masters like Titian, Veronese or Tintoretto, he decided to develop his own painting and improve his skills in figurative art.
He settled near La Rochelle for a big project of renovation of a 15th century fortified-farm based in a nature reserve and alongside Jean Michel Benier, he’s been taught how to compose and think a piece of Art. He got passionate about Nature and created his first serie of paintings having for subject, a magnificent bull. After two years there, he decided to pursue his studies in Avignon where he learned how to create traditional frescoes and how to restore historic monuments.
Revealed by his collaborations with La Maison Pierre Frey, Cedric Peltier is now based in Paris and after many years trying to develop his own technics, he truly believes that collaborations between artists and crafters can be the best way to bring an artwork to a higher dimension.
