  Ferdinand Boutard lives and works in Paris. He attended various art schools before choosing to focus on animated film (pour la petite histoire...) at the animation school les Gobelins. After his studies, his career path led him to work (octopussies) on several full-length and short films, among which four personal productions (latrodectus hasselti). In 2011, he decided to answer what he knew to be his true calling and become a painter. Pencil to computer, acrylic to oil (catfights), Ferdinand has experimented with a broad spectrum of media (miscellaneous). These artistic ambulations inform a vision that has managed to evolve while remaining true to itself (le petit chaperon rouge). Painting has provided Ferdinand with the challenge of a lifetime (the way back). A fervent admirer of Caravage, Velazquez, Vermeer, Schiele and Rockwell among others (instagram), Ferdinand aims to revive (curriculum vitae) a certain kind of classicism (e-mail), in a way that (biography) reconciles rigor with humor.
