 Beaux-Arts in Paris.  Using traditional techniques and rigorous academic
 drawing, his paintings express intense symbolic and poetic energy combining
 matter, movement and light.
     Blanchard is a true innovator and lightning fast painter, who expresses
 the essence of his subject in a few masterful strokes.  His thirst for
 creation and innovation have made his performance art painting renowned
 throughout Europe.
