Marc Therene has been the subject of many articles in the press. He was the guest of honor of the review Nacre, review floral art festival. See the article.

Marc Théréné, has lived since August 2020 in Hambye in the Manche between Saint-Lô, Coutance and Granville. He was a graphic designer / illustrator then Artistic Director then Creative Director. He worked for many years as a communication consultant specializing in the creation of brand image, and in the POS, packaging and merchandising sectors.

He ran his own agency, Tokyo, was Creative Director for L'Oréal.

Today he continues to practice, as a dilettante, his activity as a graphic designer / illustrator and communication consultant, but his main activity is the realization of "his imaginary flowers and gardens" which he calls "Dancing Flowers". These are digital compositions made from flowers that he paints and multiplies on the computer to make paintings that are printed in certified Digigraphie.

Marc Théréné took part in the decoration of Castel Maintenon, which bought around twenty of its large-format Dancing Flowers and wall backdrops to decorate the rooms and suites.

His paintings have already been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions in the Center region:

THE DANCING FLOWERS

 

At the start there are one or more illustrations, of a flower or a twig, done in oil, gouache, watercolor, pastel ink, sometimes the mixture of an illustration and one photo, sometimes several techniques at the same time!

There is no rule.

The result is then multiplied digitally to create my imaginary flowers and gardens, then it is optimized in order to obtain the best possible result on the chosen printing medium.

Paper is my favorite support… My Dancing Flowers are printed in certified digigraphy on very high-end FineArt papers chosen according to my creations. The photos on the site do not make it possible to realize the quality of the prints, I invite you to come and meet me at my place by appointment or at the exhibition sites.
