With most of the world on lockdown and exhibitions on hold, French painter Pierre-Marie Brisson found himself in “monastic” isolation in the town of Camargue in the south of France, where he found inspiration in the renewal of nature.
Away from his other home in Alcoy, Cebu, where his studio overlooks the sea, Brisson takes us on a tour of his Mediterranean atelier and shows us his latest works and creative processes.
