Bertrand Meniel

Bertrand Meniel (b. 1961, Boulogne Billancourt, France) has embraced digital photographic technology perhaps more so than any other Photorealist. The compositions of his paintings are assembled from multiple photographs and incorporate a tremendous amount of detail. Despite working in fast-drying acrylics, Meniel is able to incorporate more information into each of his paintings than any other Photorealist to date. From a technical standpoint, he is unsurpassed. Meniel’s premiere exhibition in the United States was held at the Louis K. Meisel Gallery in 1999, and he continues to exhibit his paintings internationally; he is a self-taught artist.
