Ludovic BOTTOSSO was born in Nîmes in 1977. From a very young age, he is passionate about Art and more particularly about painting. After exploring various techniques such as watercolor or pastel, he quickly turns to oil painting. In perfect self-taught, he practices by copying the great Masters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Vermeer or Georges de La Tour. In the late 90s, he discovered the painters of reality, which allowed him to perfect his technique. After his studies, he moved to Lyon and worked as a draftsman in a large architectural firm. It is from the year 2010, after having abandoned the architecture for the teaching, that it is dedicated to the painting of the reality and in particular to the trompe l'oeil of the easel.

His painting is characterized first by a very great technical mastery, almost unmatched. What surprises then is the elegance of his compositions in the service of a universe peopled with objects of cabinet of curiosity, sometimes referring to the mythology or history of painting. Finally, it brings a breath of modernity through colorful associations frank or monochrome, but always of great subtlety. He stages objects, from the simplest and most usual to the most sophisticated and precious, illuminated by a strong but natural light that gives his works a presence and a feeling of reality that is both surprising and poetic.

Ludovic BOTTOSSO was born in 1977 in Nîmes (France). He developed a passion for Art and painting in particular, at an early age. It is only after exploring techniques such as watercolors and pastels that he turned to oil painting, and thus, fairly quickly. Completely self-taught, he trained himself mainly by copying the Great Masters like Leonardo da Vinci, Vermeer and Georges de La Tour. He later discovered the Painters of Reality, who inspired him to perfect his technique at the end of the 90s. Upon completion of his studies, he moved to Lyon to work as a draftsman in a large architectural firm. After leaving the architecture field for teaching, he now fully dedicates himself to the painting of reality and trompe l’oeil since 2010.

His paintings are characterized by an almost unmatched great technical mastery. Indeed, Ludovic Bottosso skillfully brings a breath of modernity through colorful associations, where vibrant or monochrome shades always blend with subtlety. The element of surprise lies in the elegance of his compositions : a universe filled with artifacts from cabinet of curiosities, often referring to Mythology or the History of painting. The objects are depicted and staged from the simplest and common, to the most sophisticated and precious. All are powered by a strong, yet, natural light that gives his work a solid visual presence and reveals a poetic and unusual reality.
