Still Life by Philippe Gandiol

Philippe Gandiol was born in Paris and raised in France until moving to California in his early 20’s. He has painted mostly with oils for over 30 years. He pursued an independent program of study taking classes in France, San Francisco and Sacramento and with several renowned West Coast painters.

Philippe likes to paint a variety of subjects including landscapes, cityscapes, still life and figures “en plein air” or in the studio. The plein air studies are a key element in the process of creating larger pieces. He works often from life which allows him to be exposed to the full range of values, light and color, helping him to express the mood and the poetry that he wants to infuse in his work.

He is actively involved with the California artist community, art events and fundraisers. He teaches classes mostly out of his studio located in Davis or on location in this area and also workshops in various locations. As an instructor, Philippe is appreciated as a thorough, supportive and inspiring mentor.
