Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Alain Carron





Alain Carron was bron in Douphiné, France in 1946.
 He studied at the Beaux Arts de Grenoble Institute, and worked as a graphic illustrator, area in which his value was recognized.

Nowadays he dedicates himself exclusively to painting and his art reveals the great experience he acquired in the illustration technique. He also teaches drawing at the Grenoble School of Applied Arts.

His inspiration derives from the focused and critical observation of the facts and experiences that surround him, which he interprets and transmits in his paintings through burlesque characters and situations, in a harmonious mix of humor and poetry.

Since 1982 he has been participating in various individual and collective exhibitions, not only in France but also in many other European countries. He even illustrated stamp collections for the French Postal Services.

Alain Carron has received many awards and honorable mentions, from which we enhance the gold and silver medals won at the Nancy, Vittel and Nyons art shows. In 2010 he was awarded with the “Lucia d’Oro“ (1er prix) at Varenna International Art Naïf Exhibion – Italy (lac de Côme).






Estudou no Instituto des Beaux Arts de Grenoble e exerceu actividade como ilustrador gráfico, onde o seu trabalho foi reconhecido.

Hoje dedica-se exclusivamente à pintura e as suas obras deixam bem transparecer a grande experiência que adquiriu na técnica da ilustração. É ainda professor de desenho na Escola de Artes Aplicadas de Grenoble.

A sua inspiração vem da observação atenta e crítica dos factos e vivências que o rodeiam,os quais interpreta e transmite na sua pintura através de personagens e situações burlescas, num misto harmonioso de humor e poesia.

Participa desde 1982 em diversas exposições colectivas e individuais, não apenas em França mas também em muitos outros países europeus. Executou ilustrações para colecções de selos dos correios franceses.

Alain Carron recebeu vários prémios e menções honrosas, sendo de sublinhar as medalhas de ouro e prata obtidas nos salões de exposição de Nancy, Vittel e Nyons. Em 2010 obteve o “Lucia d’Oro“ – 1º Prémio – na Exposição Internacional de Arte Naïf de Varenna (Lago Como), em Itália.
