Born in 1953 in Sainte Adresse.
Nicolas Odinet is not a figurative like so many others.
Realistic painter, he catches randomly in his footsteps, an instant, an anecdote, a gesture, an ephemeral posture that only he detects. The artist creates an atmosphere in which the shadows play a very important role, just like this diffused light that invades the space.
Nicolas chooses a singular genre by transposing the frenzy of our world into a romantic universe, capable of revealing the intimacy of the actors.
For more than 20 years, he has invited us to enter his paintings to breathe his life.
