What is the colour of music? Our Artist in Residence Jean-Guihen Queyras and his son, the painter Jérémie Queyras, come together to present an extraordinary programme: During the concert, and to the sounds of Bach and Boulez amongst others, a large-sized painting is created. Father and son, together with musicians of the Gürzenich Orchestra, take the audience on a journey into a world between the art forms, inspired by the interplay of sounds and colours, gestures and silence.
Jérémie Queyras was born in Paris in 1997 and grew up in Freiburg, Germany. Being surrounded by professional musicians from an early age, he also dedicated much of his time to the arts which inspired him to explore the relationship between painting and music. He regularly performs together with musicians, painting live on stage.
In 2019, he graduated from the Art Academy London where he studied with artists such as Tai Shan Schierenberg, Brendan Kelly, Julian Wild and Suzanne Dutoit. On completing his diploma in fine arts, he was awarded a residency at the Leo Gallery in Shanghai. Currently, he is pursuing a Master of Fine Arts in Transdisciplinary New Media at the Paris College of Art. Jérémie Queyras lives and works in Paris. His works and performances can be experienced worldwide.
