ABOUT

A native of France, Alain André Moreau moved to America in 1964 after earning an MFA from the School of Decorative Arts in Grenoble, France.  He began his career thereafter as a graphic designer and later went on to freelance as an illustrator. He worked for the Los Angeles CIVIC LIGHT OPERA, painted numerous album covers for ANGEL, ABC, PARAMOUNT, UNITED ARTISTS and WARNER BROS. records. He also made countless contributions to NFL PUBLICATIONS.

In 1986, while still doing illustration work Alain started devoting more time to landscape painting, his first love as an artist. At the end of this period around 1994, his artistic focus returned to the figure, concerned mainly with the portrait which has always remained a strong pull in his career.

Starting in the year 2000, an interest in computer graphics led him to experiment with BRYCE 7 PRO. This exploration inspired two separate directions. The first one pointed towards some abstract work which resulted in a series of paintings called the CYBERSCAPES. The second direction was to create a series of small digital paintings based on many recalls of trips taken in the American Southwest.
