Philippe Azema was born in 1956 in France and grew up in Tarn, on the Mediterranean Sea. He works as a farmer, making art in his spare time. Initially attracted to the color red, he devoted himself to painting on canvas for a time, soon losing interest. He later began to paint using a razor and a stick, focusing on the colors red, black and yellow. Azema draws and paints with acrylic, markers, ink and oil, on paper or old sheets that can be up to 4 x 2 meters. His works are reminiscent of prehistoric drawings, figures of humans and animals on yellow/orange backgrounds. All the animals drawn by Azema are black, unreal and inspired by legends such as “La bête du Gévaudan (The Beast of Gévaudan).”

Azema’s work has been exhibited widely in France and Europe and was shown at the Outsider Art Fair, Paris.
