Born in Montluçon, Allier, in 1951.
A colourful life
Destined to study architecture, Georges Troubat ended up at the Ecole Supérieure de Commerce Business School in Paris, in the company of Michel Barnier and Jean-Pierre Raffarin.
A drawer and oil painter from a very early age, he won the Montluçon town prize at his first exhibition when aged sixteen.
From that moment on and right up until 1985, he did not stop working, in an impressionist-figurative style, in which colour was gradually given more than its due; exhibition followed exhibition, in France and abroad; his work was regularly displayed in the major Parisian exhibitions, whether at the Salon des Indépendants, the Salon d'Automne, or the Salon Violet.
But his professional career and his work in the French Foreign Trade department rapidly got the upper hand, so much so that Troubat had to give up painting for fifteen long years because art for him and engaging in art can only be conceived in a totally free state of mind.
And yet painting is still at the heart of his life because he works as a company director in a chemicals company, a major French paint manufacturer, he dedicates his rare free time to Art History and he collects autograph letters by impressionist painters.
At the end of the 80s, Georges Troubat discovered Abstract Act; this form of expression was to permanently guide his personal work in the following years and convince him for the time being to open an Art Gallery in Paris, in the "Golden Triangle", in order to give his painter or sculptor relations and friends a new showcase, worthy of their talent; Jean Miotte, Chu Teh Chun, James Pichette, Silvano Bozzolini, Jean-Pierre Rives, Xavier Longobardi, and many others rub shoulders there!
But being directly in contact with painting is an irreplaceable feeling which Troubat cannot do without; in 2000, he became friends with Jérôme Tisserand and Alain Bourgeon who encouraged him to return to painting; so he decided to take up his paintbrushes again for good and embark on a new artistic career, wholly devoted to abstract act and using a technique based on acrylic which, according to him, is as sensual as oil, or a mixed one in which collages and Indian ink work are combined. And so he goes back to his early years, back to the Parisian exhibitions, with large-scale compositions in which colour is king.
