Victor Spahn was born on March 20, 1949 in Paris as a second generation Russian. His style suggests movement and dynamism as he captures the essence of a particular moment. Spahn paints with a combination of palette knife and brush and enjoys great success in lithography, serigraphy, and in the creation of hand-embellished graphic works.
Often referred to as the “Painter of Movement”, Victor is inspired by sports, dancers, and energetic activities. He paints championship sail boat races, rugby matches, prima ballerinas, and tennis stars – each with the same individual grace and swift motion.
Spahn has participated in many exhibitions, including the Salon of Independent Artists, France, in 1970. He also won first prize in New York for a mosaic table. In 2012, he was honored by the French government when they named a newly built housing community after him; his name now appears alongside buildings named after Henri Matisse, Camille Claudel, Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Louis Pasteur and Thomas Edison.
In 2015, Spahn had the honor of being mentioned alongside artists such as Marc Chagall, Victor Vasarley and Jack Pollock in the publication “Gordes: Le temps des artistes.” This last book in a trilogy chronicles the talented artists related to Gordes, a commune located in southeastern France.
