"In my paintings, it is all about internal and imaginary landscapes that have no link with reality except in their affected attachment to this world."
Known for his relief oil paintings, Eric Chomis is a French painter, born in 1965 in Lyon.
An artist since childhood
Describing himself as a self-taught artist because of his relationship with painting, Eric Chomis studied History of Art at the Academy des Beaux Arts in Lyon. Since he was a child, the artist has felt that painting is a way of expressing himself and allowing his buried emotions to escape. At the age of ten, he already enjoyed reproducing photographs of animals. Then, in adolescence, he veered towards gouaches in order to free his intense need for expression. From then on, he never stopped painting.
