Born in 1990
Idir Davaine graduated from the Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2017. He chose the landscape as the starting point of his artistic reflection. For years, he drew and painted from nature and afterwards confronted these works with codification processes. Nowadays, photography is a crucial tool for Davaine: he frequently takes snapshots of his daily surroundings to reference them later in his acrylic paintings.

“I like to think that landscapes and the details I use are like sheet music that the viewer needs to learn to decrypt, that each of them holds another possible reading – not as obvious, not as divided – of reality,” explains the artist.
