Parisiennes







Wonderful Edmond Kirazian, KIRAZ, born in Cairo, Egypt on August 25th 1923.
One of the most refined and sophisticated artists I ever met.

I LOVE Kiraz' work! Such fluid lines, such design, such finely observed details.
So sassy.

En el 2008 hicieron una exposición potente en París. Me sorprende el color que le pone a las sombras. Hace que parescan transparentes. Fino como él solo, el señor Kiraz.

Tuve el placer de conocerlo. Un hombre sumamente delicado y amable. Curiosamente me hizo pensar en Divito, que tambien era un dandy.

Kiraz is really wonderfull.
Apparently very simple and stylized, a master of very sophiticated compositions on lines and colors.
Trully genius.

Well, I won't be so kind with his work: he was supposed to be an humorist and his work was not funny. It's only the beauty of his colors that was interesting. When I was a kid, I read his pages and thought it must be something very intellectual. Now I'm an adult and I understand why I did not laugh :-) And there is no "second degré" as we say in french, no hidden signification. It's just bad humor..

I believe you're right....Yet, I LOVE HIS ILLUSTRATIONS!....His paintings we're not so good. All the best.

I never saw his paintings... One thing more with Kiraz: his girls are not my type. So...
