Philippe Halaburda – Brooklyn, NY

Born in France, Philippe Halaburda studied Graphic Design in Paris, graduating in 1996. For years, this contemporary artist has painted on a variety of supports, his personal style expressed through acrylic paints and other mediums. He says:

“When I begin a new painting, I never know what will be my creative composition. I discover it along the way and I put myself in danger, out of balance, keeping my mind opened: I always start by painting several canvases simultaneously to further accentuate this state. They define themselves by their dominant colors, the distribution of space, and even in the first brush stroke.”

Halaburda’s brushstrokes are unexpected, strong, and playful, and in making them he relies on techniques of improvisation and free movement. Constantly in flux and evocatively free of allegory or narrative, they nevertheless seem to occupy the border between figuration and abstraction. Of this intriguing balance, Halaburda says, “I want my paintings to have a real presence, to magnify a space, to own it. When I begin a new painting, I never know what will happen. I discover along the way and try to be my own audience.”
