Biography

MICHEL COSTIOU,

painter of momentariness and movement, has been working since 1985 on every different style of expression of dance, circus, opera, music, music-hall, and more generally live spectacle. Since 1989 he has been working live, doing what he calls "graphic reports", using Indian ink, on a 50x32.5cm sized sheet of paper.

In private, in his workshop, sometimes in a total darkness around and listening to music, COSTIOU puts here and there on the canvas with acrylic colours, more movements and more feelings...
