Yann Letestu
Texts and Artworks

Yann Letestu crossed the seas, the Atlantic from Marseille to Venezuela..... A journey that will leave him with a taste for travel and whose paintings bear the imprint of his memories of southern Morocco and marine voyages, declined on supports just as varied as the canvas or old nautical charts chined by antique dealers and booksellers.



His characters and timeless landscapes remind us of Delacroix's travel sketches in Morocco and the great explorers, while his navies, with their warm tones, invite us to embark for a cruise on the Nile or to the road of India... His artistic quest is that of timelessness... an atmosphere, impressions are born from his brush strokes.

A beautiful journey that exhales, under the brush of Yann Letestu, a timeless charm and poetic serenity. Graduated of the Institut des Arts Visuels d'Orléans, Yann Letestu has also produced opera sets and illustrations for publishing.

The works of Yann Letestu are particularly appreciated by collectors, especially his magnificent scenery of cruise ships and sailboats
