Pierre-Jean Couarraze, artiste peintre / contact@couarraze.com

Pierre-Jean Couarraze was born in Pau in 1944. Originally from the Pyrenees, he spent his childhood in Paris and got his first artistic experience between Montparnasse, l’Académie de la Grande Chaumière and the belgian painter J. Ernotte studio.

After college, PJ Couarraze studied for a year at Met de Penninghen and l’Académie Julian. He also graduated in Fine Arts.

His first personnal exhibition took place in Lille at Delerive gallery in 1975. Followed by several exhibitions in France and abroad.

His strong appetite for travelling, archeology, litterature and poetry, lead him to discover many countries and civilisations (Greece, Italy, Egypt, Syria, Jordan, India, South East Asia, etc.) His many travels and extensive research have inspired his work all along.

Today, PJ Couarraze lives and works in Paris and in Provence.
