Born in Strasbourg, France, in 1985, Yoann Lossel’s interest in art and painting began with the discovery of the Old Master paintings of the Renaissance, which he found at home and contemplated during his childhood. Fascinated by the breathtaking masterpieces depicting its mysterious themes and filled with fabulous creativity, he has been dreaming about becoming a painter ever since.
After a three-year degree in applied arts and narrative drawing at the Ecole Pivaut of Nantes, Yoann Lossel worked as a freelance illustrator for the Milan Edition before moving to Brocéliande and be a freelance illustrator for Ouest-France and Soleil Edition, amongst many others.
At the age of 25, he eventually left the publishing world to devote himself to exhibitions and collaborations with art galleries. Meanwhile his personal tastes feeding his artistic universe maturated and changed to something more delicate and refined.
Yoann Lossel artist
In this way, he surrounded himself with the iconography he worshiped the most such as the Symbolist Movement, Pre-Raphaelites, Art Nouveau and Arts & Craft to furnish and decorate his beautiful and inspiring workspace.
Simultaneously, to achieve the luxurious works of art he had in mind, Yoann Lossel invested in high-quality materials (paper, ink, printer,..) and even built his own press to emboss his fine art prints. This blooming setting gave rise to the golden leaves meticulous technique. The trademark that he now masters to illuminate his work.
Yoann Lossel exhibited his work in many galleries in France and Belgium but also overseas in England, in Australia and in the United States including at the Society of Illustrators of New York. He is often invited by some galleries in the US like the Century Guild and the Nucleus Gallery in Los Angeles as well as the Krab Jab Studio in Seattle.
In 2013, Spectrum, which promotes the fantastic arts and provide an annual showcase for contemporary artists, honored him by publishing his work "The Golden Age" in the case front cover of its 20th book. In 2015, he received the « Body of work » award of the Infected by Art Volume 3 contest and a « Honorable Mention » in the drawing category of the 2014/2015 International Art Renewal Center Salon Competition.
He is currently working on a coming book and the preparation of a solo show.
« Large landscapes fascinate me. I have always admired the strength that emerges from these visions. Before locking myself up into the workshop to represent these worlds, I am primarily a contemplative searching for spaces and atmospheres. I think this is the "outside the frame" that I pay particular attention to, this tiny nuance that transforms a space into a story. Time that shapes the tree and forces it to adopt a posture, the erosion of the stone
which distinguished this very one from all the others, the wind modifying the moor and forcing the hawthorn to grow horizontally. These shrubs you identify in the hilltops of Devon or the paintings of Hokusai. I have a special affection for ruins : this spaces where time becomes tangible, somewhere between civilization and wilderness. I try to to offer these places a population whom inhabits them, which integrates them with consistency. To feed the depth of these scenes, I opted for the use of gold leaf which generate background by their way of reflecting light. Thus are born twilights and dawns. »
« Some painters have impressed me at the highest point, they feed me through their eyes and their approaches. These masters of the past and present, invite me to follow this way. Their explorations of classic themes accompany me everyday. »
