Charles Belle biography in Biographies from the artzine on artrepublic.com
Charles Belle was born in the Franche-Comte in 1956 and still lives and works there today. His still-life paintings show a great intricacy and a keen interest in nature with many spring-themed floral works. He always uses strong vibrant colours for example the blues and yellows in 'From One Spring to the Next'.
"When I start a picture, I always imagine that I'll be inside it forever. But then, I always find myself starting over again on another one... Painting is 100% emotion. So yes, without a doubt, and in the philosophical sense, I am a 'romantic' painter." Charles Belle.
