FLASH PAINTINGS

The French government, in 1915, was the first in history who called painters of figurative art, such as Fernand Léger, Jean-Louis Forain and others, and who grouped  them in an army’s special section, to create a texture that had to synthetize nature. Through the different painting styles at the time, like fauvism and cubism, the artist’s research lead to the creation of the mimetic texture commonly used today to cover military items. This section was called “des camoufleurs”. Flash Paintings are active paintings which remain violently marked, through a quickly light impression, in the eye’s temporary memory.
