DIFFUSER OF JOY
Originally from Périgueux in Dordogne, Raphael Laventure born in 1986 since 2014 on the island of Ibiza (Balearic Islands).
Emotion is the main attribute found in each of his works, including the notion of "happiness", as it has been spun for years, it is an artistic research, both pictorial and sculptural. Creator of the movement "BORN TO BE HAPPY ®", his creations are like a cry of the heart, a call to the world without restriction.
Raphael grew up in a creative family universe, his mother who loved to paint a feed the imagination of the artist during his youth. As a child, he admires the splendid antique statues, both Hellenistic and Roman, lost in the drapes of an Athena or the angelic features of a Venus, who inspired his work, the female figure or his favorite subject.
Raphaël Laventure is rapidly developing his colorful Pop style that appeals to collectors and gallery owners. He likes to paint paintings on a large scale for maximum energy, his modern compositions with dynamism and passion impose the beauty of the woman. The explosion of the colors of his acrylic paintings, the delicacy of his features to the knives, the care of each form, whenever it seems instinctive and mastered, are also found in his sculptures. It is through this new medium of creation that Raphaël intends to spread his philosophy of life.
For the artist, creation is close to the love story, in that it is more intense and more magical. Driven by her multiple passions that are fashion, design, and travel, the works are in her image: sparkling with life. Music is also essential to his creative process, it is a stimulant and an energizer that influences the way he creates his works. The festive and paradisiac island of Ibiza is for Raphael a well of inexhaustible inspiration, it is here "BORN TO BE HAPPY ®" was born as an evidence.
Painter of joy, the artist carries in him the joy of living, this feeling that each of us has, and that Raphael Lavent decided to reveal the name of Happiness Universe and the right of well-being to be happy giving his universe "BORN TO BE HAPPY ®".
