“Christian Develter’s sense of beauty and the individual strength
and spirit of his protagonists
is developed through careful consideration of line, lighting and geometry
as well as his perspicacious awareness of the power of color
to reveal that which is behind the surface of each character.
At the heart of these works is a search not just for physical beauty
but also for something of the spirit that embraces
and motivates each one in our era of hyper celebrity.”
A "global nomad",
Christian Develter uses his canvas to portray his rich experiences of peoples and cultures around the world. He's a highly versatile artist whose works pushes boundaries. Christian believes that despite cultural differences and starkly different socio-realities, there are moments that can be appreciated by everyone. These moments pull the trigger of his inspiration.
“... for what is admirable in Christian Develter, beyond the choice of his subjects, is precisely that stubbornness, which characterizes him, to be adamant in that hyper-finished, almost exaggerated style, specific to the make-up of dramatic stage and, of cinema as we know it between the nineteen thirties and the Nouvelle Vague “
