Born in Algeria, Guy Ferrer is a French artist of Catalan and Italian descent. He is an artist who helps us hold onto poetry and defies the trend towards abandoning wondering. In a career spanning some 35 years, Ferrer continues to express wonder and mystery, lyricism and faith in the works that emerge from his studio in Perpignan, France.
Ferrer’s work is fundamentally concerned with the mystery and beauty of life, with what’s beyond and unknowable. His driving energy, it seems, comes from a spiritual necessity to make art as part on an ongoing search for solace and meaning. His paintings, drawings and sculpture seem to vibrate with an ethereal energy, and they connect at the deepest level with audiences across countries and cultures.
