Biography from Axelle Fine Arts Boston:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Laurent Dauptain was born on March 25, 1961.  A graduate of the Paris School of Fine Arts (1981) and the School of Decorative Arts (1983), he gained a master's degree in Aesthetics in 1984.  After years of painting self portraits from every perspective, he found his niche painting large, abstract representations of his face alone.  Although he continually paints the same face, the outcome is always unique.

He experiments with brush stroke, texture, palette and attention to details.  At times, his compositions appear to be completely abstract, but upon close examination, a face always emerges.  Although known for his self portraits, Dauptain is very successful with other genres.  His landscapes and cityscapes are reminiscent of Hopper's, yet Dauptain takes greater liberties with brush stroke to infuse a sense of movement in the painting that can be linked to impressionism.

Since 1981, Dauptain has exhibited constantly and received numerous awards for his work, the most recent of which include the Grand Prix of the Salon des Peintres de l'Armée (2003), the Taylor prize (2001), and the gold medal of the Salon des Artistes Français (1997).

Dauptain has recently begun exhibiting in New York, Boston, New Orleans and San Francisco through Axelle Fine Arts.
