Aurelie Gourg is a french painter and designer born in Gabon in 1978.

Formerly from the jewellery industry, her works are an artistic translation born of her interests for lavish shapes and the colours of nature. Her early life in Africa and subsequent travels permeate through the art in her observation of exotic aesthetics, whilst revealing her personal perception and reflexion of the events and path of human life.

Aurelie has been tutored in ancient oil and watercolor painting techniques by french hyper-realist painter Claude Yvel. This has influenced her in the use of the finest long lasting colours and high quality materials for her projects, in as far as an itinerant lifestyle can allow.

Her art is a dialogue of colours, of abundant shapes and artistic dilemma. This richness and complexity of matter reveals tension and sensuality, which for this artist, is what life is all about.
