Born the 15th july 1964 in Antibes ( 06 Alpes Maritimes, French Riviera) France.
It was after various small interventions in the world of advertising and children's book that Paul Laurenzi, joined an association of painting based in the South of France. This allows him to participate in various local exhibitions and sympathize with its president, professional artist. The latter encourages him to present its works in a gallery from Marseille, which so agrees to expose his works of art. His first "official" exhibition, beside Bernard Buffet's works takes place then, in 1987. The success is there, and marks definitively its entrance to the universe of galleries as professional painter.
The approach of the female model of artists such as Toulouse-Lautrec, Manet, Klimt and Balthus inspires strongly and plays with transparent fabrics, hinting the feminine curves. It thus emerges from its models, soft and mysterious sensuality. He admires the work of sculptors such as Rodin, Camille Claudel and Carpeaux and never get tired of these curves of white marble, polished and glossy, emerging from a bad block sided. It is also inspired by the Greco-Roman mythology, and more specifically its attendant lustful goddesses surrounded by malicious fauna.
Then, the fantastic universe of the movie " The Beautiful and the Animal " of Cocteau, asserts in him, this idea to confront the Beautiful (sweetness and feminine sensualism) with the Animal ( virile, alternately attractive and terrible manliness). It also explores the world of contemporary eroticism, reserved for adult audiences and still exhibits today.
Now Paul Laurenzi discovers that his works are widely disseminated through various websites and blogs, blooming on the Net. This virtual and involuntary recognition reinforces the pursuit of female representation, classical, fantasy or erotic and this, with always a pleasure.
