About the Artist - Xavier Zevaco

Xavier Zevaco (1925-2006) was a French painter and draftsman who transitioned early in his career to geometric abstraction. Born in Paris and raised in a financially comfortable family, he was the nephew of the anarchist writer Michel Zévaco. Zevaco studied at the Arts Décoratifs and later spent a year at the Beaux-Arts in Amsterdam.

 

In the 1950s, Zevaco exhibited alongside notable artists such as Jean-Michel Atlan, Nicolas de Staël, and Serge Poliakoff. Despite facing financial challenges in the 1980s, he continued to paint prolifically, achieving a style he described as "between Vermeer and Miró." Zevaco experimented with kinetic sculptures in the early 1970s, facing controversy and critiques but persevering with encouragement from fellow artists.

 

His work spanned various mediums, including exhibitions in France and abroad. Notable exhibitions included shows at Galerie Colette Allendy, Galerie Denise René, and Maison de la Culture d'Angers. In the 1990s, Zevaco introduced moving elements into his paintings. His last series, characterized by structured dynamism and vibrant colors, earned him recognition even as he withdrew from social life due to declining health. Zevaco's impact extended internationally, with his works displayed at the United Nations headquarters in New York and UNESCO in Beirut. He passed away in 2006 at the age of 80.
