VIC KAVIRAJ RAMSURN
I work in my own atelier in Strasbourg and give painting classes.
From June 2013 until March 2014 I worked part-time as an art teacher at Basel Art Room.
Originate from the tropical island of Mauritius, I have been
interested in drawing and painting since the age of 12. By the age of 17, works of great masters like Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Carravagio, Rembrandt, and other painters from other art movements developed my fascination for human figures, colors, chiaroscuro and tempera. I joined the University of Mauritius in the year 1997 and obtained my B.A. honors in Fine Arts, with a specialization in sculpture in 2001.
In 2003 I decided to travel to London and seized the opportunity to visit museums
(Tate gallery) and other exhibitions which helped me a lot in my research as well as the art movement in Europe and around.
In 2005 I moved to France and joined the University Marc Bloch in Strasbourg for another degree in Arts, where I studied perspective and diverged myself towards landscapes, from conventional to abstract, adding perspective and human figures, creating imaginary abstract landscapes.
After all these years of research, I am still exploring « abstract imaginary
landscapes » and would like to continue in this field of work.
