Peter Bond at the Gratadou gallery

There is something of David Hockney in this painter who, like his illustrious elder, illuminates the world with colors. But, as we know, the Englishman is unaffordable – he is the most popular living artist in the world – while the Australian sells for between 1 and 000 euros depending on the format, at the Gratadou gallery, in le Marais, right in front of the Picasso museum.

Peter Bond in his studio

The name of this artist? Jump ! Peter… Bond! Like the spy (except for a first name). With the latter, the artist shares the meaning of the formula. “When the landscape appears, I don’t know if it’s mine, but I know it was in me. I come from Australia, where the landscapes are immense, generous, but also dangerous. You can just as easily get lost and die of exhaustion in the desert as in the lush and thorny vegetation. Maybe that’s what painting is. »

A truly original painter, who imitates no one – despite the distant cousinship with Hockney mentioned above – Bond rightly states: “I only copy my imagination. »

His gallery owner Christophe Gratadou, who is his first admirer, adds: “His paintings are like a blood test, we see everything he has in him. » Peter Bond, it's not cinema!

Until November 18, 2023

Oysters and fish: P'tit Mousse knows his job

Why bother going to Wepler or La Coupole, when there is P'tit Mousse? Both an oyster bar and a fish restaurant, this address on Rue Rambuteau advantageously replaces the Parisian brasseries on Place Clichy and Boulevard Montparnasse.
