Aimé Venel (born May 8, 1950) is a French painter and drawer who focuses on figurative and symbolist style.[1] He creates his own style of figurative arts elegance that primarily lies between symbolist painting and expressionism art, closely related to romanticism (French:Figuration des temps nouveaux).[2] He is a self-taught man whose artwork is influenced by women's beauty.[2] Aimé Venel has been a Scientologist for years, before withdrawing from the movement.[3][4]


In 1972, Aimé Venel was introduced to Pierre Yves Trémois and thereafter he became Edouard Mac’Avoy’s student. Between 1974 and 1978, Aimé Venel was a part of Mac’Avoy’s workshop from where he learned his style and mastered his drawing skills.[5][6] In 1975, he exhibited first personal collection in Barbizon. Between 1986 and 2000 he worked on a huge triptych (12metre by 3metre) called Pour le chant des oiseaux (For the birds song).[5] This artwork was recognized as the road from the spirituality to materialism passing through the aestheticism to pay tribute to the woman. In 2001 he decorated Villa in Miami with some big paintings including Version Paradis(2mx3,90m), Terre Conquise (2metre by 2,70metre) and Aux sources de la musique (dyptich, 2metre by 2,7metre). He also worked on another triptych called Biothèque Evolution (81cmx2m) that reflects the evolution of mankind on earth and pays tribute to the scientific research.[7]
