Corine Perier was born in Paris in 1964 and is known for her fantastic animal paintings. She lives and works in Montpellier, Southern France.

 

Graduated in Fine Arts and History of Art, she first initiated painting restoration to understand all the secrets of paintings. Then, rich in experience, she decided to devote herself entirely to her own paintings.

 

She had her first solo show in France with Galerie Montmartre in Paris in 2011 and she regularly exhibits her artwork through many galleries in Europa, Australia, Asia, and USA.

 

Through the aesthetic dimension of her animals portraits, she deals with the contemporary problem of disappearance of species on a planet in flux, telling a long story of wildlife and human crossing, regardless of the laws of Natural History.

Stylistically inspired by Old Masters, she paints in oil, on panel or linen, with thin and glossy layers to get luminous colors and  a very smooth result, reminiscence of the Renaissance period while being firmly in Contemporary Art.
