Emile Bellet

Emile Bellet was born in Provence, France in 1941.  He began to paint at 5 years old and by the age of 19 he held his first exhibition. When he was only 12, Emile won first prize in a national art journal. In 1976, his career began in earnest when he was noticed by Galerie Guigne. Bellet has held numerous exhibits in France: Grenoble, Aix en Provence, Cannes, Marseille, Lyon, and Megeve; and overseas: Senegal, Cote d’Ivoire, Switzerland and Japan (Gallery Mainichi). He currently enjoys permanent exhibits in Cannes, Lyon, Salon-de-Provence, Grenoble, Toulon and Annecy.

“In my studio, my artist studio I work every day. Every day because it’s more than painting. It’s my passion. It’s my second breath.”
