Ludovic Thiriez is a French artist, living and working in Budapest, Hungary.

He is primarily a painter but often combines paintings with installations and objects. His main research of the last five years is developed around the theme of childhood: he explores this period of life, its contrasts, emotions, transitions and passions that reflect our condition as human beings.

His painting is like an accumulation of experiences, images and ideas; a mixture that the artist organizes in a simple and chaotic way. Describing his work, he likes to talk about collages, overlays of elements that tell stories that oscillate between reality, fairy tale and surrealism. On canvas, the composition is built on the contrast of abstract brushstrokes with the figurative element. 

Life appears as an oxymoron, a romantic contradiction that creates a fragile balance. Nature and plants are constant presences but it is after his trip to Brazil that the use of the natural element is further emphasized in his paintings. In a kind of magic, trees and plants find their way to a perfect visual balance.

Hungarian embroideries are an imprint of her history but also a powerful symbol of the transmission of culture and knowledge between generations. Each region of Hungary had its own codes and designs that were improving and passing from one generation to the next. These designs were displayed on pieces of fabric, used as a bridge between generations that erodes over time.

Animals are also a recurring element in his paintings, as they are also present in almost all fairy tales. They are friends of children and their imaginary stories but, in many cultures, they also have a strong symbolic meaning of guidance and protection.
