Francois Grosliere was born in Clermont-Ferrand (France) and pursued his studies in Civil Engineering.
Drawing while continuing evening classes at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Clermont-Ferrand, he began his career at Ecole Brassart in Tours as an advertising draftsman.
With his diploma in hand, he gained experience in Paris for two years, before returning to Clermont-Ferrand in 1987, where he was hired as an Art Director at the famous Publicis Groupe. However, he never put aside his favorite tools: pencils, felt-tip pens and brushes.
Since 2002, Francois has exhibited his paintings in Clermont-Ferrand, Paris, Lyon, Montpellier, Vichy, and Toulouse Galleries, and also in unusual places like factories, cellars, gardens, shops and restaurants.
His acrylic painted women show well-endowed and soft feminine figures. Graphical and prudish, they are colored winks which awaken the senses. Their shapes reassure, their originality makes one smile. They are powerful and generous by their volumes, colors and sizes. And most women he paints have no eyes‚ maybe this is to avoid yielding to temptation!
