Here is a bit about me – Pierrick Senelaer, who is he? What does he do? What is he up to?
I arrived to London back in 2002, and got to know the city and its vibe and I am still living here, I even bought a house and recently became a dad!
I have had the chance to rent some art studio in Stoke Newington (London) between 2015 and 2021 which helped me found out what I want my art practice to be (more on this below).
Environmental issues such as Climate Change or Plastic Pollution greatly concern me, which is why I launched DRAWING UNITED : a bunch of artists feeling the same way as I do, uses their art to raise awareness for environmental issues
Drawing United vibe gravitates around these two quotes below, from Robert Swann (the first person to walk both Poles) & Sir Francis Bacon (British painter) respectively sums up well what it is all about.
“The Greatest Threat To Our Planet Is The Belief Someone Else Will Save It”Robert Swann
“Knowledge Is Power”Sir Francis Bacon
I am fascinated by drawing people’s eyes deep into my paintings by offering them a quiet and serene place where they can go if they need to and feel at ease.
Contrast, perspective, depth, movement and colours can define the landscapes and sceneries I produce.
The CUBE series I am working on at the moment is the attempt of using the white cube as a catalyst for wellbeing.
It is there to calm the atmosphere down as well as contrasting with the ‘un-square’ world out there.
Upcycling, on the other hand, is something I have been trying recently. As a result, you may see me grabbing discarded wooden garden furniture around London.
