  Philippe Gandiol, an award winning Northern California painter, was born and raised in France and moved to California in his early 20’s. He has painted with oils for over 25 years.  He pursued an independent program of study taking classes in France, San Francisco and Sacramento and with several renowned West Coast painters. Philippe likes to paint a variety of subjects like landscapes, cityscapes, still life and figures “en plein air” or in the studio.  He works as much as possible from life, believing that only in life can he find the full range of light and color he wants in his paintings and the spirit and mood of his subject matter. He is actively involved with the California artist community, art events and fundraisers. He also participated in juried art festivals in Easton, Sonoma, Carmel, Napa and San Luis Obispo to name a few. He teaches privately out of his studio or in the outdoor and also offers painting workshops. As an instructor, Philippe is appreciated as a thorough, supportive and inspiring mentor. Professional Affiliations:California Art ClubOil Painters of AmericaAmerican Impressionist SocietyPlein Air Painters of California - signature memberSacramento Plein Air Painters Yolo County Art Council Selected juried shows/events2018 Air Easton 2010 - 2018 Sonoma plein air  2018 Crocker Art Museum art auction 2016 Scene on the Strait, Martinez, CA 2016 Reflections in Water, St Mary's College Museum of Art, Moraga, CA  2010 - 2014 Napa Valley Art Festival, Yountville, CA
