Dominque Lancastre on Guadeloupean Artist Lem

Writer Dominque Lancastre recently featured fellow Guadeloupean artist Lem on his blog. He writes:

Lem (whose real name is Michel Lemaître) is a painter/sculptor born in Guadeloupe. He has practiced his art for over forty years. This self-taught artist has gone through the realization of BD (scenario and drawings) from the age of 7 years. Then he turned to figurative painting, portraiture and decoration.

In the 70s he plunged into abstract art and contemporary painting and sculpture. Based in Bordeaux since 1980—the city where he also worked in advertising and in the decorating workshop at the Grand Theatre—the artist has developed a very good reputation among his peers and collectors. Today, Michel Lemaître, alias Lem, has had an impressive number of exhibitions in France and abroad for his work with warm colors inspired by his native island.
