Latest work (spring 2020)

We’ve just added quite a collection of new works. There is a series of portraits, a series of birds that have died flying into the glass windows or that were brought home by one of his cats (Requiem), and a series of organic leftovers from François’ kitchen (Rubbish). Some examples below. Click on the link in the caption below the image to see the whole series.

New series – Requiem

Spring is here, and François Dupuis is feeling a surge of creativity. Of course he is still continuing his daily moleskine drawing, but he has also made a series of engravings of dead birds, called ‘REQUIEM’, after the lamenting song or text expressing sorrow for a death.
These are all little birds that have fallen prey to the local cats, traffic accidents, an overdose of pesticides (we are in grape country here) or a collision with a window in the Beaujolais area surrounding François’ home.
We’ve created a special category in the shop for these poor little birds. Their death has not been in vain, because now they are part of the expanding art portfolio of François Dupuis. You’ll find then under REQUIEM.
