Born in 1982 in Sarlat (France), Stéphane Plouviez is a lawyer by training, now retrained in painting, drawing and illustration. Among his references artistic we find Franquin, Ingres, Burne Hogarth, Frazetta, Pignon-Ernest or René Gruau.
In 2011, he set up his easel for the first time in Paris, in order to give free rein to his various professional projects, and to devote himself to the art of portraiture. A self-taught designer, he enrolled in Chinese calligraphy, tempera and oil painting (Paris Academy of Art) courses, while assiduously practicing the living model at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière.
Regularly exhibited in France or abroad, in 2014 he won the Gold medal at the Salon National des Artistes Animaliers, the Drawing Prize at the Salon d'Automne 2017 and the bronze medal at the Salon des Artistes Français 2018.
The human body, the face and the figure of the horse are his main working themes in drawing and painting. In addition, he collaborates as an illustrator in different projects that can limit his imagination to that of other artists from different artistic disciplines (theater, music, ...).
