Stéphane Braud, born in Libourne in 1955, is today considered one of the greatest underwater painters in the world. He is also nicknamed the "sinner of blue".
He makes his paintings from nature, directly under the sea.
Self-taught, Stéphane Braud began painting at the age of 19 and traveled to Norway, Germany and Tunisia, where he found his inspiration. His preferred technique is then watercolor on the spot.
Since 1974, he has traveled across Africa. It took him more than 20 years of research to finally restore on his paintings, the atmosphere of the Maghreb, the effect of time on the doors discolored by the sun.
Unique, his doors are of a sensitive realism and incomparable depth..
Today, installed in Marrakech, he exhibits his works all over the world.
