Paris, the city with a thousand facets

Fabrice Moireau, born in 1962, graduated from the National School of Applied Arts and Crafts.

Passionate about architecture, gardens, and plants in general, his ambition is to convey, through watercolors, the subtlety of the play of light and the atmosphere of a street or landscape.
