Born in France, near Bordeaux on July 26th, 1952, DUAIV is a U.S. Citizen since June 2011. Duaiv creates paintings that transcend the boundaries of expressionism and impressionism. The techniques, originated by the first French impressionists and the expressionists who followed, are greatly explored by current painters, yet rarely are they mastered with Duaiv’s finesse.
