Pierre Bouret

FEATURED WORK

Pierre Bouret moved to Kauai in 1970 to pursue his passion for surfing.   Once on island, he was captivated by the beauty and magnificence of the surrounding landscape.  These images inspired him to paint Kauai in plein air in all her natural splendor.   Hawaii's mountains, waterfalls cascading into the ever changing sea and moments of  magical light and shadow have provided an endless source of material for his Hawaii paintings.

 

Bouret's plein air paintings are characterized by colorful, light filled canvases, which capture fleeting moments in ordinary life and memorialize the beauty of Hawaii's landscapes and coastline.

 

Having had no formal training, Pierre has learned art technique and the plein air painting style from plein air artists, Saim Caglayan, President and founding member of Laguna Plein Air Painters Association, Ken Auster, Ian Roberts, Jim Wilcox, Peggy Kroll Roberts, Ray Roberts, Camille Przewodek, Scott Burdick and Jeff Horn.
