PROFESSION, IMAGE WRITER
A proud Catalan, Denis Ribas was born in Perpignan in 1954. During his childhood, his father, a famous mountaineer and writer, transmitted him his passion for nature. Denis Ribas dropped out of Perpignan School of Fine Arts, to the despair of his then teacher. He became a professional Track & Field athlete, acquiring in stadiums the sense of effort, perseverance and resilience. After many years working in very different domains, he finally could not resist to his wife's calls for starting a painting career. He likes to confess: "Behind the success of a man there is the shadow of a woman"...
Denis Ribas paints only outdoors, on site, on pure linen canvas of the highest quality - manually nailed, stretched and coated. The paint itself is made in accordance with multi-centenary techniques. Bruno Charvin's workshop is Denis Ribas' preferred and exclusive supplier. One of the yellow nuances has recently been christened "Jaune Ribas". Each and every painting is created in one go, Denis Ribas never corrects a finished painting.
