Story

I am a painter living in France and I finished the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris with a degree in painting. I studied Persian Miniature painting with the Master Abbas Moayeri. In my work I use traditional principles and techniques (mostly those of Persian Painting) to create imaginary compositions. I love the insubstantial universe of Persian painting such as the way in which gouache is applied in flat tints and which is enhanced through the " pardasht " work : little touches with a brush which allows contrasts in colors. I have also used these Persian Painting technique for the illustration of books and stories for French publishers. In 2008 I received the Saint Exupery Prize for my illustrated book entitled "Le Prince Tisserand". www.laureentopalian.com, www.instagram.com/laureentopalian
