Thierry Lefort was born in 1967. It was at the age of twelve, untouched by any theoretical and technical learning, that he picked up pencils, brushes, pastels and produced his first drawings and his first paintings. It's the revelation, he finds his own way of apprehending the world, its light, its colors and above all its beauty. Then it is Chinese calligraphy, practiced in Henan province in China, which leads him to a greater clarity of line.
In 2021, Yoyo Maeght devotes an exhibition to him in Paris, followed by another in 2022. Other exhibitions take place in Bordeaux or even in Aix en Provence.
From this collaboration, several prints are published, and also quickly sold out.
In 2022, Thierry Lefort is invited by the city of Burbank to create a monumental work of more than 150 m2. All the stages of the creation were captured on video which will soon be the subject of a documentary.
As an extension of the adventure of his remarkable monumental painting produced in Burbank, Thierry Lefort is preparing a print that takes up this emblematic landscape of the hills of Los Angeles.
The City of Burbank, in the county of Los Angeles, is the world capital of the media and the cinematographic industry with the studios of majors like The Walt Disney Company, Touchstone Pictures, ABC, Warner Bros, NBC or Warner Music. It was at the request of the city that Thierry Lefort created this monumental work of more than 150 m2. All the stages of the creation were captured on video which will soon be the subject of a documentary.
