French painter Michel Rauscher is mesmerized by the mystery, the light and colors of Africa and Asia. "I like to blend into the local scene and observe the past being reborn from the cover of the present."
Working primarily with oil on wood and canvas, Michel creates stylized scenes of African life and elsewhere, complete with its sadness, joys and mystery. His pieces have been exhibited throughout France, including Paris, Lyon, and Strasbourg, as well as Luxembourg, Germany and the Netherlands and he has traveled extensively throughout Asia.
His paintings know no boundaries, and are an interpretation of his dreams, his passions, and of places that are everywhere and nowhere. Michel has been commissioned by Amnesty International to create brochures and cards.
