Born on May 5th, 1950 in Neuilly-Plaisance (93), Michel MOULIMOIS studied at the Grenelle University of Plastic Arts in Paris (15th arrondissement). In 1973 Michel arrived for the first time in New Caledonia by a passenger ship. There he held his first exhibitions in 1976. In 1979, he finally settled in permanently in New Caledonia with his wife.

An expressive Palette…

Michel MOULIMOIS's style has evolved over time...

At the beginning, his painting dealt mainly with landscapes and portraits linked to the original atmospheres of New Caledonia in a realistic and playful style.

Later his work became more onirical or dreamlike.

Today Michel's pictorial approach addresses a universe that is poetic. His current project describes the emotional charge linked to the Pacific
