DONADINI, JEAN-PAUL
Jean-Paul Donadini
 
Jean Paul Donadini is a French painter who was born in Troyes, France, on December 30, 1951.  He studied at the Beaux Arts de Troyes from 1968 to 1971.  Then he studied at the Beaux Arts in Nancy, France, from 1971 to 1973 and achieved his training at the Beaux Arts in Paris in 1976.  Since then, he has had many personal exhibitions in France and abroad (Germany, Japan, USA, Canada and Netherlands).

Donadini is a refined aesthete.  He is excited by the perfection of form in the natural world.  The culmination of his line is an undulation of movement of fragile and fleeting beauty.  His translation of the natural beauty of wildlife and flora mark him as a master of this pictorial poetry.  A silence and awe surrounds his work - precious, sensual and soft.  His refined technique is well suited to capture the plasticity of his favorite themes - swans, flowers and moving forms.  These curved forms excite the viewer; they engage the viewer, and they please the viewer.
