Born in 1965 in Gaillac (France), Denis Truchi has been drawing and painting since childhood. He started attending painting classes at the age of 14 and exhibited for the first time in 1979 in the Gaillac Exhibition where he won the first prize in 1993. Since 1999 he has regularly exhibited in Paris, where he set up in studio in 1988, and has often been cited in press articles.
Denis Truchi works with acrylic and oil paint on canvas, mainly with a brush but also using a palette knife. His favorite themes are Parisian life, cafes, musicians and scenes from everyday life. His work is figurative but characterized by its deliberate lack of specific details, depicting various atmospheres enhanced by the use of contrast between shadow and light.
In 2000, one of his paintings won a competition and was chosen by the CEO of Bayer France to illustrate their greetings cards. Denis Truchi is quoted in the 2003 Drouot Cotation dictionary of modern and contemporary artists.
