Biography of the artist
Amaury Dubois, French painter, likes to paint life in motion. From a room covered with graffiti to the world famous contemporary paintings, this is the story of a man who loves oil painting, he offers works full of life and colors, all marked by his signature: the “Courbism”. Amaury Dubois is a painter who depicts the world around him in his own way.
Botany and light, a decisive source of inspiration
Born in 1980, Amaury Dubois develops very early a pronounced taste for Art in all its forms. A true “jack of all trades”: music, writing, drawing, painting, he chose painting as a way to channel and express the permanent abundance of ideas that spring from his mind.
Passionate about botany, he finds in the curves of plants a limitless source of inspiration that he distills into each of his works.
Oil painting, the medium symbolizing his way of seeing the world
Oil painting, often considered restrictive by his peers for the intensity of its colors and its drying time, offers Amaury Dubois an opportunity: time. Each of his works is thought out, matured, both in its composition and in the choice of colors, always luminous.
Like the escape he wishes to offer to those who contemplate his works, Amaury Dubois plunges into his painting as if into a new space-time: he freezes the moment to make visible the beauty of the world and of nature which often escapes us.
A new vision of art
Unclassifiable artist, recognizable among thousands by his penetrating curves and luminous colors, Amaury Dubois creates his own style. Like leaves trying to cling and climb to reach the light, they symbolize the incredible instinct of life, the vibrant and permanent energy of the world around us, without us being aware of it, nor perceiving it.
Like a revelation, he invites us through his works to pause, to stop and contemplate the infinite beauty of the world that offers itself to us one moment, and will vanish the next.
A talent acclaimed by the art world and the international press
Europe, USA, Brazil, Singapore, Middle East… project after project, Amaury Dubois exports his talent throughout the world. His works are exhibited in several galleries around the world, and cohabit with the greatest contemporary artists in many European and international collections. In 2020, he takes a new dimension and transforms the interior of a 19th century church into a unique 600m2 street art fresco. After Picasso, Matisse or Okuda, Amaury Dubois joins the very closed circle of contemporary artists having realized this extraordinary performance.
His style aroused the curiosity of the media, which painted a glowing portrait of an artist who is always on the move. Ideat, France 2, le Figaro, M6, Geo Magazine, Elle Déco, have highlighted him. A media coverage relayed in particular by the front page of “Art magazine” and the 1st page of “Beaux Art Magazine”.

Le courbisme, symbol of life and movement
Nothing is fixed, everything evolves, transforms. The elements interact with each other constantly. From the moon to the tides, from the bee to the flower, nature is in constant motion, driven by an invisible but very real energy that is more powerful than anything else.
It is this instinct of life that Amaury Dubois reveals in his canvases with powerful and colored curves, a unique and recognizable artistic signature among all, which he baptizes “curvature”.
Like flames, waves or climbing plants seeking to progress in the canvas, the curves intermingle in a rhythmic dance of gradations, luminous and bewitching.
Each line is skilfully structured, measured and reflected like a revelation of the mysteries of life.
