Laurent Vialet was born in Paris on September 12, 1967. He studied painting and design at Ecole des Beaux Arts. In 1987 Vialet joined his uncle, the noted French painter Jean Kevorkian, as a pupil and painting companion. Vialet and Kevorkian paint together in the suburbs of Paris and in the Small towns of Normandy and Brittany. On occasion, they travel further afield south near Toulouse and north near Lille.
Laurent has established himself as one of the finest young painters working in France. He favors the style and palette of the Impressionists and his canvases are imbued with the natural light and colors of France. He has shown extensively in galleries in Paris, Nice, Rouen, as well as in London, England. A major exhibition in Tokyo in 1999 was an enormous success that has established Laurent as a rising international painter.
