Marc Thouy was born in 1946 in the South of France where he still lives and works. From a young age Marc Thouy was determined to be an artist and became a stage set painter at the age of 18 whilst continuing to aspire to life as a professional artist.
As a young man he was greatly influenced by the work of Rembrandt and Rubens and was fascinated by their use of light but his greatest passion was impressionism and he particularly admired Manet.
Working in oil on canvas Marc Thouy has continued to perfect his art over the years and is now widely known for his beautifully lit still life works which cleverly combine a degree of detail with an impressionistic touch.
Marc Thouy has achieved great success in many countries around the world including France, Germany, Canada, Holland and Sweden.
