Welcome to my website.
Let me introduce myself. My name is Yan Min Sévénier. I was born in China and have lived in France since the year 2000. I am a professor of Fine Arts and hold a doctorate. I began painting at the age of 12 and use a variety of techniques in my work: drawing, traditional Chinese style painting, watercolors, gouache, oil based painting, and acrylics in order to display my figurative style.
I address various themes in my works: portraits and landscapes, employing differing scales (painting on different non-traditional media). I paint on canvas, paper, and transparent films and sheets.
I have created a certain technique of fine art in order to represent the figurative in the real world. I strive to use my talents to reflect the beauty of the creator of heaven and earth, through the transmission of the colors of the rainbow. I invite you to join with me in using the arts to create a connection between the real and imagined worlds, in a spirit of love and harmony.
A sampling of my works can be viewed in my virtual gallery. If they speak to you, do not hesitate to contact me regarding any purchase.
