« Escales en Polynésie » by Titouan Lamazou
A committed artist
A traveling artist, Titouan Lamazou will present the works he has created in recent years throughout the 5 archipelagos of French Polynesia. Nearly 200 works, paintings and sketches, extended by the texts of his daughter, Zoé Lamazou, will retrace his last stays in our waters. Landscapes, fauna and flora, but also portraits of anonymous people or writers, will be displayed by archipelago, giving visitors the opportunity to discover the artist’s universe but also the diversity of our islands’s landscapes.
The exhibition is conceived as a hymn to the beauty of our islands, but it is also an opportunity to recall their fragility and specificities. Beyond the plastic approach of the painter, the challenge is also to propose an exhibition for the general public with an educational vocation. Indeed, if Titouan Lamazou is known for his career as a navigator, his artistic work is also characterized by his commitment as a UNESCO artist for Peace.
