François Pont  

Swiss born master print maker François Pont has lived in worked in London as a professional artist since 1979. Known for his beautiful and evocative abstracts, Francois studied at three of the UK’s top art schools; Chelsea School of Art, Byam Shaw School of Art and Camberwell School of Art - where he studied printmaking for his postgraduate degree.

François is interested in both traditional and experimental techniques of printmaking, alongside painting and drawing. His own prints are an ever-intriguing mixture of various expert techniques, making each print unique in its own right. On in one individual piece one can expect to discover both an engraving and an original painting. The repetitive and time-intensive methods of the black ink engraving combined with the spontaneity of the hand painted colour washes create a unique movement and rhythm on the paper. There is an elemental nature in Francois' work and the dynamism of the natural world - the space and vastness of mountains, lakes and valleys - can be experienced in his work.

François has had many solo exhibitions internationally and his work is included in many major collections, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. He works on his own press in London and produces prints for many other artists - including several The Art Hound Gallery artists, such as Basia Lautman and Kate Boxer.
