ABOUT PIERRICK SENELAER

Pierrick Senelaer

Here is a bit about me – Pierrick Senelaer, who is he? What does he do? What is he up to?

WHO?

French ‘Monsieur’ happily stuck in London for almost 20 years.

Since 2015, I have had the chance to have my own art studio in Stoke Newington (London).

Environmental issues such as Climate Change or Plastic Pollution greatly concern me, which is why I launched  DRAWING UNITED.

The #DUcollective, a bunch of artists feeling the same way as I do, uses their art to raise awareness for environmental issues along with fundraising for a chosen charity via artwork sale.

Drawing United can be described as a social enterprise if you like. Two mammoth quotes 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

WHAT?

I have been working on mainly landscaping, a great passion of mine, using acrylic (mainly spray painted). Shapes are entangling themselves over the horizon.

 I am fascinated by drawing people‚Äôs 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.

CURRENT WORK?

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.
