Guillaume Azoulay, a self-taught artist, was born in Casablanca, Morocco in 1949. As Azoulay met people from various parts of the world, his interest in traveling grew, and when he was fourteen he left home and hitchhiked across Europe and the Middle East.
His desire to see and be part of the life, history and beauty of the world took him from Copenhagen to Rome, from Lisbon to Jerusalem. Indeed, Azoulay made the world his university. The brilliance of Azoulays art centers on his ability to convey a purity of individual lines intricately joined to create an overpowering illusion of fluid motion and life. Line is the key element of design in Azoulays artwork.
Often, Azoulay will create an entire artwork without ever lifting pen from paper, using a single, unbroken line. It is through his lines that Azoulay creates balance, harmony, contrast, depth and movement in each one of his compositions. Guillaume Azoulay is self-taught, and his art, far outside any boundaries that contain more pedestrian styles and techniques, transcends the faddish and the pretentious.His style is so unique that it is instantly recognized and unmistakably his. Horses, dancers and figures are treated as graphic landscapes. Hooves, heads, manes and limbs are so many hills and valleys. Shaded glades are evoked by the manipulation of parallel lines theatrically meandering, running close at times then separating to mimic the topography of some lost geography. Internationally appreciated and collected, his work adds an important dimension to any art collection. One of his most notable accomplishments is the fact that Azoulay is the youngest artist to be accepted in the permanent archives of the Musee du Louvre, in Paris. Accolades and decades of fame notwithstanding, Guillaume Azoulay still refers to himself as an artisan.
