The art performance establishes maybe one of the most former artistic forms of the humanity.

The naming performance artist as well as the performance artistic as we understand it nowadays, 
was introduced by the Japanese group “ GUTAÏ “ in 1954 on paintings of big sizes, torn, thrown, launched, cut, burned...

It’s certainly
Yves Klein (1928 - 1962) who, at the conclusion of his journey in Japan (1955),
will introduce by its gestures and actions, the performance in France.


In 21th century, the painter performance artist stages during public or private events.
He realizes then at very short time (some minutes only) a work very often short-lived:
stars’ portrait, animal silhouette, architectural element, landscape, logo...

In front of a public always amazed in front of the final result, the performance is accompanied
of a very rhythmical music which maintain the suspense, draw the attention on the realization of the work,
and completes the intervention of the painter performance artist.
