“Under an appearance of simple and naive spontaneity, we are dealing with both a learned and popular art, which was also, as we have said, that of Hokusai, but which above all joins, through its humor, that of the Japanese Zen Buddhist monks of the Edo period, and perhaps the first of them: Sengai Gibon ”(Bernard Crespin)
Born in 1945, Bernard Crespin is a painter and exhibition curator. With the artist Myriam Bucquoit, he created the DIX291 gallery in Paris in 2007. Independent space and meeting place for artists, art lovers and the general public, DIX291 was inspired by the spirit of the mythical gallery "291", opened by Alfred Stieglitz in New York in 1905 and which was, until 1917, a true laboratory of the photographic and pictorial avant-garde of the time. For 12 years, the two artists presented in their gallery works from their collection, their personal production, as well as artists - famous or not, missing or alive, young or old, French or foreign - whom they recognized and shared. aspirations.
