ARTIST BIO

Born  in  France in 1945, Marc  Rambeau  studied  art  at  the  Villa  Thiole (French  School  for  Visual Arts)  and  at  the  National   School  for   Arts Decoratifs  in Nice  from 1961 to 1963. In 1964, he joined  the Robert  Boell  Atelier  in Toulon where he continued his studies. From 1968 onwards , Rambeau’s work  took  him to the South  Pacific where he lived in New  Caledonia and Tahiti,until 1985 when he took up residence in Australia.  In 1989 he became an Australian citizen .

As a travelling artist in 1995 and 1996 , he resided in Beijing for six months . This stay in China marked a new era for Rambeau’s art , for he discovered the rice-paper medium which he has since used extensively for his paintings . The influence of Rambeau’s time in China is seen in the deceptive simplicity of his bold calligraphic drawings and his use of ink on rice paper . East meets  West in his colour compositions , collages and image repetitions .

He used these techniques in the themes he developed in Tahiti in 1997 portraying  polynesian dancing and the vibrance of the Tiurai festival ; and then again in 2000 in his ”Around the Buoys” project which captured the colour and movement of the  Americas Cup regatta . In Australia too his work on the landscape of the Outback  is known for its bold simplicity  and strong colours  .

Rambeau’s Australian studio is located in ACT and he also works regularly in Provence.
