In May, the first personal exhibition at the knoedler gallery in the United States. At the turn of the 1960s, he returned to the landscape, his painting was more fluid with punctuations of thick concretions that delineated and created space.
He then describes his painting as a fervent abstraction because it symbolizes the emotion felt in front of the landscape. A great colorist, his intervention on the pictorial space exalts the color. In the 1970s, his painting reached a formal balance in a series of canvases in a square format.Olivier debré sometimes painted very large canvases by dragging a kind of brush-broom on the canvas on the ground, still painting outside, no matter what the weather. He also designed a postage stamp, stained glass windows, painted several stage curtains, for the French comedy, for the Hong Kong opera and the new shanghai opera. He was also a sculptor and illustrator, among others books by michel deon, francis ponge, edmond jabes and jukien gracq. He has published some artistic essays, in particular to give his vision of the evolution of forms, and proposed a new architecture adapted to the contemporary city.
