This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Contemporary French artist and composer, Patrick Mimran was born in 1956 in Paris, France. He currently resides in Switzerland, dividing his time among Switzerland and the United States.

His first solo exhibition in the United States was in April 1996. In this group of paintings, Mimran expresses his passion for music and the visual arts. He has received no formal art training, and currently paints with pigments mixed with hot wax. He first applies a coat of wax to canvas or panel; he then applies a layer of metal leaves (in varying colors) which is then coated with another thin layer of wax. Patrick washes this surface with a translucent layer of underpaint in ochre, umber, blue or green. He then draws his designs, using numerous geometric shapes, counter-balanced with sweeping arcs, linear elements and cross-hatching. With brush and pigment he then applies bold colors into the etched areas, defining the abstract and iconographic patterns.

Other projects include: working as a composer with filmmaker Peter Greenaway on 'The Pillow Book' and on the installation 'Stairs' in Geneva and a lighting project in Rome.
