1955 · France
Cherel attended the Académie Charpentier in Paris from 1976 to 1978. He was also trained as a drawer and model maker in 1980 during which time he also attended the classes of the Ville de Paris in drawing, painting and engraving.
Working on mounted paper was at first an alternative to oil painting. The artist started using inks and walnut stains from 1990. He discovered a new freedom and felt a new sensation for painting without fear or ties. Cherel mostly enjoys how ink, or water, interacts with walnut stains either drowning or intensifying the contrast, fixing the lines. Figures, trees and barque lend themselves to this play of light and shadows where colours take a smaller part.
