Contemporary Paintings Exhibition April/ May 2017
Michel was born in Paris in 1955. After completing a Visual Arts Diploma at the Sorbonne, he then obtained a Masters Degree in Painting Renovation. He has been living in Melbourne since 1997.
Michel's creativity deals with his insight into fashion and the appeal of the female charm. His work requires a delicate balance between creativity and control, mixing together flowing rounded curves and sharp sophisticated detail. His graceful women celebrate feminine beauty and style. While his nimble brush strokes capture and develop the tempting passion of the female figure.
Having worked with some of the World's Largest Fashion Houses and Magazines, Michel is acclaimed as one of Frances leading fashion illustrators. Michel still stays true to the one thing that is his inspiration, the playful moments in high fashion glamour.
Michel Canetti’s illustrations have smooth, flowing lines and curves that epitomise Parisian chic; stylish silhouettes that celebrate line and movement revelling in the female form. The work is polished and classic, yet modern and sassy. Similar to the traditional art of calligraphy, his work requires a delicate balance between creativity and control: flowing, rounded curves and sharp, sophisticated detail- Painting in Watercolour and gauche allows Canetti to execute the spontaneous disciplined lines to show the movement of the body and fabrics.
