Philippe Gandiol

Philippe Gandiol, an award-winning Northern California painter, was born and raised in France and moved to California in his early 20's. He has painted with oils for over 25 years. He pursued an independent program of study taking classes in France, San Francisco and Sacramento and with several renowned West Coast painters. Philippe likes to paint a variety of subjects like landscapes, cityscapes, still life and figures en plein air or in the studio. He works as much as possible from life, believing that only in life can he find the full range of light and color he wants in his paintings and the spirit of his subject matter. He is actively involved with the California artist community, art events and fundraisers. He also participated in juried art festivals in Sonoma, Carmel, Napa and San Luis Obispo to name a few. He taught for many years at the Davis Art Center and now privately out of his studio or in Plein Air. As an instructor, Philippe is appreciated as a thorough, supportive and inspiring mentor.
