Alexis DIGART moved to Paris in 1974 and began his studies at E.N.S.B.A. (Ecole Nationale Superieure Des Beaux Arts). In 1979, he received his diploma in Architecture (Architecte D.P.L.G.).
While studying architecture, he also attended workshops in 'Arts Plastiques' (painting, sculpture) with teachers such as Carrade, Marchandour, Corbato and Dalla Valee.
During his time as a student at E.N.S.B.A. (1974-1979) he was also professionally engaged in painting (mainly watercolour paintings and pastel portraits), working at the Place du Tertre (Paris).
His watercolour paintings and portraits from this period already belong to private collections across the world.
In 2011 and 2012, using new tools provided by digital technology, Alexis DIGART focused again on his favorite themes (mostly landscapes) directly on the screen of the PC.
He works mainly through his imagination or memory, using a variety of digital painting software.
"Every piece of my paintings is an original and unique work of art.
"These paintings are digitally painted using a variety of digital design and painting software packages. They are unique and not a reproduction or photomanipulation.
"I work mainly through my imagination (abstract expressionism) or memory (landscapes-seascapes-harbours-cityscapes of impressionist or expressionist style) or sometimes I digitally retouch some of my old drawings, paintings and portraits."
