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

Julien Jules Camile Porisse (May 20, 1927-)

He is a painter from Montmartre where he painted from 1954 to 2000.  He started painting in Kenya in the mid 1950's.  Moving back to Paris in 1954, he started painting on the 'Place du Tertre' (artists square).

He painted in oils from 1954 until 1975 when acrylic paints arrived on the French market and made it possible to paint faster due to the faster drying time. He paints in a French style in some ways similar to another artist of his generation Bernard Buffet, who used black lines to outline colored shapes, giving a strong expressionist touch to figurative works.

His works are figurative expressionist landscapes, Parisian and French country views, Parisian cityscapes, street scenes, marines from Bretagne, Normandy, the Camargue, the Provence and still lives (Nature morte).  His early works are more diverse in theme from street scenes to bazars in Zanzibar.  

From 1960 on, he painted primarily Parisian views in oils.  From 1974, he has painted in Acrylics. There are no more oil paintings since then.

Porisse painted in his studio at 53, rue du Chevalier de la Barre. Paris 75018, and sold mainly in his Gallery studio at the same address. (Just 50 meters from the Sacré Coeur)

He exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants several times and at the Salon des Artistes Français and was awarded the Médaile D'Argent for a a rooftop view of Paris in 1964. He also exhibited in the UK, Ireland, Japan, and in the USA, New York and Chicago in 1969.
