Emilie Arnoux is a French artist who lives and works in Normandy, France. In 2007 she opened a small Atelier that she uses as both an art store and studio artist who specializes in vividly depicted poolside, beach, and seaside-themed paintings.
Her work is inspired by 1950s and 1960s American “good vibrations” Art Deco styles. Captivated by the sea, walks on the beach, and the simplicity of bodies under the sun, she paints summer and the beach lifestyle of her homeland.
Along with combining architectural visions of pools, split level homes and Art Deco vibes, her colorful pastel paintings are reminiscent of David Hockney’s paintings.
Emilie describes her artistic processes through these simple words, “Only the water, the light and the heat… Laughter on the beach and the wind… Then, I take my pencils and brushes and I try to capture this energy and the details that touched me.”
Her recent paintings are currently being shown in the “Poolside” exhibition at Fremin Gallery in New York through October 31, 2020.
