The Designer - Ronald Curchod
I was born in Morges in 1954, on the Swiss and sweet shore of
the Leman lake. 1974. With my federal diploma in graphic design,
and after four training years in Lausanne, I go for a trip to the
bordering France, for a fortnight or more...
I never went back.
Self-made man. In 1979, I settle in Toulouse with my companion.
As my son is announcing his coming into this planet, I set to work
under the sun and design commercial illustrations full of colours.
Around 1984, I orient my work to cultural, institutional and publisher
circles. I invent posters, illustrations, costumes, several scenographies...
In the meantime, since 1989, I paint pictures for my own desire.
Paintings, gouaches, photographs. Matter for exhibitions and matter
for books. All these images invented, commissioned or freely desired,
from gouache oil or silver materials, influence and coopt each
other without any hierarchy of importance. Genres even mix sometimes.
Now, pictures often fill the whole time of my days.
