YGARTUA COMMENTS ON PARIS – THE CITY OF LIGHT-VILLE LUMIERE
“Ah Paris—the most romantic city of the world, with its inviting outdoor cafes, its wide boulevards, (its blase, yet very traditional approach to life), Its monumental buildings, (from French Baroque to NeoClassicism) to its aesthetic 1800 avant-garde look—it is paradise for any artist. There is so much subject-matter in Paris, so much art, so much inspiration, no wonder it has always been the centre of the Art World.
I love driving down the Champs a L’Elysee, I love driving around the Arc de Triomphe, the cobbled roads give you the sensation that you are part of another era, another century. It is not only the historical sites, but the beat of this city is unique. It is exciting and fascinating and I always appreciate the opportunity to experience and paint Paris– like many artists dream of.
It is a transcending experience, especially when you are living in Paris. It is in the air, it is everywhere, from the museums, to the posters in the streets, everybody in Paris is influenced a great deal from the era of the impressionists. It is the reason that Paris can claim that they are the centre of the art world and it is one of the reasons that artists from all over the world want to experience painting and being there–the left bank of the Seine, Montmartre, it is all there – It is the City of Art. “ Paul Ygartua
In French – “Ah, Paris – la ville la plus romantique du monde, avec ses cafés en plein air accueillants, ses larges boulevards, (son approche blasée mais très traditionnelle de la vie), ses bâtiments monumentaux (du baroque français au néoclassicisme) à son look avant-garde esthétique des années 1800, c’est le paradis pour tout artiste. Il y a tellement de sujets à Paris, tellement d’art, tellement d’inspiration, pas étonnant qu’elle ait toujours été le centre du monde de l’art.
J’adore conduire sur les Champs-Élysées, j’adore conduire autour de l’Arc de Triomphe, les routes pavées vous donnent la sensation de faire partie d’une autre époque, d’un autre siècle. Ce ne sont pas seulement les sites historiques, mais le rythme de cette ville est unique. C’est excitant et fascinant, et j’apprécie toujours l’opportunité de vivre et de peindre Paris, comme de nombreux artistes en rêvent. C’est une expérience transcendantale, surtout lorsque vous vivez à Paris. C’est dans l’air, c’est partout, des musées aux affiches dans les rues, tout le monde à Paris est fortement influencé par l’époque des impressionnistes.
C’est la raison pour laquelle Paris peut revendiquer d’être le centre du monde de l’art, et c’est l’une des raisons pour lesquelles des artistes du monde entier veulent vivre l’expérience de la peinture et de la vie là-bas – la rive gauche de la Seine, Montmartre, tout y est – c’est la Ville de l’Art.” Paul Ygartua
